Lockup on playing games and DVD

I have a Multivision Solus 1030 Laptop 512 mb of memory,60 gb hard drive(18 gb free),Mobility Radeon 9600 Graphics.Recently it has begun locking up as desribed in title normally after about 5 minutes.I have turned the game settings down to no avail.The Dvd Drive driver is up to date the graphics card driver seems not to be capable of updating as Ati do not support notebook drivers and refer you to the manufacturer-Multivision have gone bust.My feeling is it is not a graphics card problem but I am at a loss.I wonder if it is a hardware or memory problem.Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I aslo expierence the same problems with my MOBILLITY RADEON 9600. I had Evesham take a look at it and when they installed the latest CATALYST drivers it all seemed to work fine.

Have you tried Right Clicking the Desktop>Properties>Settings>Advanced>Troubleshoot> Turn the accelaration down one notch and test.

I belive the most recent CATALYST drivers fix the problem
