I think is is DDR 1 based motherboard, need more information about your system like how much memory installed, which operating system you are using, Is it causing only for Internet video or any HD formatted movie you play in your system? What happens if you play large or heavy games or lunch large software which needs much memory? How log you are facing this problem?
Note: If you installed Ram about 256/512MB, and use programs in background at a time and try to brows internet It may happens, It may happens even if memory if defected, if your browse crashed and hang the os (most time windows). One other thing is it also can be happen in case of your graphics card or damaged motherboard! (Be sure about RAM first and operating system (is not virus effected) first). you can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further query.
The fastest way to check or correct it to make sure you have the latest software drivers for your graphics card and for the Windows operating system you are using.
Another thing might be your graphics card may be overheating and simply shuts down or not enable you to use it to its fullest potential. If you can put a normal house fan next to your pc open the side door and see if it helps. If it does and you can watch a movie and play high graphics games then its overheating.
But get the latest drivers for your graphics card first.
From your explanation i understand that you have to restart the PC if you try to run a game or some time while browsing on internet because it goes blank randomly.
Well while looking at the symptoms it make pretty sure that this might not be the issue of heat as you said but this might be because of the RAM or Graphic Card and why that would be the reason is like only while you try to run a game or while watching a movie clip, graphics the RAM or Graphic Card is extensively used for the video performance and system file execution(for gaming), so at this point of operation if there is some conflicting software or if the RAM or Graphic Card fails to cope-up with the CPU speed will lead to system crash or screen goes blank and must restart the PC.
so in order to fix this problem you have to carefully check the RAM and Graphic Card for any circuit burns, loose connections, and you can check if you RAM is OK by using the memory diagnosis method used by LINUX OS.
try viewing a movie without any internet connection. if you can view movie without internet connection, i suspect that your computer is infected with a virus. install an antivirus to fix the problem. i suggest avast home its free. and after it is installed have it fully scanned and dont interrupt it while scanning to kill all viruses.
Depends on what's more important to you- gaming or watching Blu-Ray Movies. XBOX 360 has the best games, better controller and a better online experience($50). However, it is slower, lower end hardware, annual fee of 40-50 for online play, no hd player (HD DVD is dead). PS3 has one or two good games, small controller and has analog sticks in non-intuitive locations as opposed to the xbox controller. It does however, have higher end hardware(Games are seamless because of the higher end cell processor as well as better graphics card). You can also browse the internet on the PS3(it's really a computer)-u can connect a wireless keyboard and mouse and install Linux on it. Online access to games is free and comes with an awesome Blu Ray Player. The Black and silver finish is laso gorgeous. So, if u;re more into gaming, go fo xbox 360, HD movies, go for PS 3. I have both and love the XBOX 360 just for it's awesome xbox only games(GOW, Halo, Etc).
