Kernel- power ID 41 (63) while playing games

Hello there I recently installed Just cause onto my comp ( I know its an old game!)
and started to play.Within a few minutes into actual game play the computer crashed with a blank screen the screen was green( I think) and a constant buzzing sound was coming from the speakers.The only way you could restart the comp was by holding in the power button to turn the damn thing off!

Once I had logged on again I lookend into the event viewer to see what the hell just happend,it turned out that the following was the details:

Right-click on the program, and select Properties. In the Compatibility tab, tell it to run in compatibility with XP.

Well, I Googled for your error, and I came across this page: Iam having Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power crashes

In summary, try updating your BIOS, updating your sound card driver (Realtek, right?), and checking your power supply. Perhaps it is not powerful enough?

Try searching for your motherboard here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support-

BTW your motherboard is what you put down for Manufacturer, so that would be ASUS P5N-D

If you trust me, and want a direct link, rather than navigate through that site, I have attached the file to this post. Otherwise, the link is above.
