Help

I have had loads of probs with this computer. It played games fine until about 3 weeks ago. Since then whenever i click PLAY on any game the screen goes black and the computer flashes. I have latest drivers on bios and graphics card, lastest flash players etc. Even old games like half life do not work. Can anyone help ? I have a Athlon 1.6 with 320mb ram and 38gb free space. I also have a ge force 5200 128mb fx. Please help as i just got broadband and cant game on. No one i talk to can help

The computer crashes is what i meant to say
Also i have a bios test and it shows my voltage to high and a alarm goes off. Does this mean anything?
