Windows 7: Computer crashes while installing Windows 7 and playing WC3

Computer crashes while playing WC3

My newly bought (this month) computer froze many times while I was playing Warcraft 3.

It even froze when I was installing Windows 7.

Strangely, it doesn't freeze if I'm playing Left 4 Dead 2.

Btw, there is no blue screen. The screen simply freezes.

May be memory, test memory with memtest86.

Make sure that you have up to date drivers and cards.

Be sure that the game is fully compatible.
Use Microsoft Compatibilty Center.

Make sure the compuer is not overheating during the game.
