    i was watching an .avi and all of a sudden the pic freezes and the sound skips like a record player. no inputs work, i hold down the power button to shut it off.

    now the computer will go through the bios screen, then restart, then go back to the bios, then restart, etc....

    heeeeeeeeeeelp!

    Hit F8 on startup and select the option to disable automatic reboot on system failure...

    You might be getting a blue screen.. Post up what it says.
