My nintendo 64 cuts out part way through a game
This is an old system, so there are several possible issues.
Some games require a memory expansion pack. You can usually find this on the Internet. It'll increase your RAM levels-essentially, a new RAM chip. To simplify a bit, that's short-term memory. If your game is skipping and losing audio before your console crashes, this is a likely problem.
Your game itself could be the issue. To clean its data contact points, put your mouth near it and suck air in. This removes dust from inside. Now, if it still doesn't work, get some nail polish remover and a Q-tip, and scrub at blackish-colored spots until they fade away a bit. (This solution works with GameBoy/DS as well.)
Your console is outdated. It was released in the 90's; it's possible that it's just falling because it's old, especially if children played a little rough with it. It's frustrating, especially since your warranty is definitely void and Nintendo can't replace your console, but sometimes these things happen.
