it could be a heating issue

download SIW from my signature and open it

now on the left, under Hardware, you will find "Sensors" click on it and check the CPU temperatures

go into any game other than Vice city and play for about 5 to 10 mins, exit the game and recheck the temperatures again

You can find arctic silver 5 at your local PC store or maybe even bestbuy or staples. I don't think its going to be much more than $9 but toothpaste is a very bad idea It may work for a while but I would not want to test it.
