If it only happens when playing games or when web pages are loading pictures then try updating your graphic drivers..

Seems that there is something resource hungry running in the background - go to task manager and see what is there.

Getting into taskmanager will depend on your operating system - if 2k / xp, right click on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen and choose task manager.

See what programs are running there and especially under the processes tab.

If you require help, it will always assist if you let us all know what your PC is about.
Ie. Operating system, Type CPU, and other details.
Kind regards
