This could be a few different things you may not have enough memory(ram) in the computer, the video card can't handle the games because there isn't enough memory on the card. it never hurts to add another fan to cool it off better. most higher end video cards have cooling fans on them too.

My Dell Demension Desktop B110 Model has a fan bellow the power supply fan motor. That so called fan that I'm speaking of so happens to cool the processor, through a funnel type housing that goes around...


there will be a sticker on the fan itself,
it starts "CNxx-xxxxx-",
the italicised x's above denote a 5-digit part number. call dell and ask for a fan, quote the part number and but one.
failing that most local computer repair shops can change the fan motor/blade unit and fit it into the original housing.

If you have the original Windows operating system boot disk or can get one via download, try booting off that. If the computer then runs OK, you will need to attempt to format the hard drive.

Any XP installation disk will format your hard drive. All you have to do is boot the XP installation disk and follow the prompts. IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE YOU CAN'T GO BACK! unfortunately you can't recover on OS that you've overwritten... And if you could you wouldn't want to. You need an install disk, which Compaq should provide for you.
