Default Computer locks up when playing games

Sometimes when I'm playing games the computer locks up and nothing works. The entire screen freezes and I cannot do anything. Is the problem the video card, the driver, or is it the cpu? I have the latest 77.77 drivers.

Try some older drivers. It also could be something else than a driver problem since it happens with 2 different drivers.
