Windows XP Media Center, systems freezes; suspect Radeon x600 xt
A couple of weeks ago, while I was using Media Center to record a TV program, the computer made a buzzing noise and froze-up. When I manually restarted the system, I got an error message from Windows telling me that it suspected the Radeon x600 xt caused the system failure. I can run the PC for about 20minutes - 2 hours before the system crashes again. I restored the computer to the orignal factory settings, then tried uninstall/reinstalling the drivers for the Radeon still no luck.

Try this reformat your pc again without using your video card, after installing Operating System (XP) instelled your motherboard software and then shut down your pc. Put the video card in its place and power on your pc, click add new program as it may pop-up after it detect your new hardware.Installed the video card software and restart your PC.
When that happens you usually need to backup your data, and reinstall the system to fix Windows corrupted files.
first doing a system restore to the most recent date before you started
having the problem. If system files are damaged this will not help.
The media center is part of the WMC operative system. You can also
reinstall media center alone using add remove programs, then Add remove
windows components. Often that does not work, and you need to use a
Windows MCE setup disk to fix the problem.
Seems like a virus or spyware on the computer: Uninstall any existing security program like norton or mcafee by using their removal tools from http://pcsafety.us/ from the same site download and run AVG antivirus free, Super Antispyware - update and perform a complete scan on all the drives.
If these dont work you need to run combofix but that may crash your pc so keep it as a last resort.
You can take it to geek squad but they wond do all this they will simply format your harddrive and you lose all your data.

Some possible causes can be system heat causing the video card to freeze. Sometimes it can also be related to the video driver or MPEG2 decoder. Make sure to use the right decoder and filter for the video playback.
