Alright so my problem is the following:

At random times, mainly when I try to play a game or watch a movie my computer crashes. When that happens, my screen freezes stays like it is for a moment, then all the pixels are mixed up, creating a distorted pattern of what was on the screen in the moment of the crash. Not only that, in stead of crashing, sometimes my sound just stops and I can't get it to work again until I restart my computer.

Question: What is the cause of these crashes and how to solve it ?

How much RAM do you have considering that is the only thing I'm failing to see up there?

LOL That is why dude, you need at least 2 GB of Ram to play games. My system has a hard time running TF2 with a GB of Memory.

Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce 6100 (128 MB) <-- EW XD Dude you need to start upgrade your computer. That's another partial reason.

Yes, you need a lot of RAM for Gaming, Usually gaming computers start with 2GB of RAM. and The graphics card most commonly used for gaming is a Nividia GeForce 9800.

Well obviously I would recommend that you get a processor with a dual core or higher.
