Xp keeps on Freezing.....

I noticed this problem a while ago but never thought much of it... Now... when i try to rush my pc it freezes.
Everything runs as normal but when I try to run Carom3D(A 3d online pool game) it freezes up almost instantly when a game starts but not on the menus... Maybe a graphics problem?
Also my pc started up and i right clicked the "Blue Bar," It froze again...

Amd Athlon 1.25Ghz
20GB Hd-
256mb Ram
Nvidia GeForce4 MX 440

Is This A common problem with sp2??

For a start, you should have 512mb to run Xp. Is the G/Card 64 or 128mb. Does it freeze on other games???

I changed some graphics settings from 32bit to 16bit and all seems right. Fingers Crossed

I went into the event viewer to check what has been recorde and all i see are lines of red x's..

It says- Error-DISK-Event15

There are seventeen of these in a row and then 3 other things:
They say- Information-Application Popup Event 26..

There are many many errors down this list and after all of these are the 3 application popups.

Please help me so that if i know that something in my pc is hammered i can get it fixed asap..
Help GREATLY appreciated

I finally got it fixed.....

I had a Coolermaster Fan on my processor which was making funny noises...I had a sneaky suspicion thats what it was anyways...
I took it off and put on an old coolermaster that i had........
