I could easily tell you (speculation more than anything) that it could be because of audio and video drivers but... +1 on what laybackbear said, w/o system specs it would be a simple speculation.

Overheating could also be the problem... Check your hardware temp in idle/load.

Are your fans running at optimal speeds? Are the breathing vents clean? If not, clean the fan, the vents and the heat sink. Try updating your graphics card drivers. If you already have the latest, try an older driver.

Seems like a heating issue to me.
