I have a problem with fullscreen games such as Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 2 crashing after 15 min of gameplay. Combat Sim 2 switches between fullscreen flight mode and window style menus, so it does not crash unless i have been flying for 15 straight minutes. When these games crash, my monitor just goes black and my computer acts as if it is going into a screensaver mode. I have disabled all screensavers and it still happens. I have an ATI Radeon Graphics Accelerator installed and I have checked in BIOS that AGP was set. I have searched multiple forums for a solution to this problem, but have yet to figure out the problem. ANY help would be appreciated.

If none of the suggestions pharoah linked you to help, download Everest (the link is in my signature).
Load up Everest then go to 'Computer' -> 'Sensor'.
Take a screenshot of the temps and voltages you see there before running any other programs, then take another one after about 10 minutes of gaming (if you can, just alt-tab out of the game and open up Everest again).

Please post both those screenshots back here so we can check them.

Cheers.
