I suspect that my video card is going bad. When I attempt to run streaming video, my computer freezes up.  It doesn't do it every time but frequently. Am I correct? My video card is ATI Radeon HD 5700 series.

You can boot with a Linux CD / DVD and look if it will freeze.

Do you have the latest video driver installed?  ATI has an automatic finder on their site for drivers.

Have you checked the Event Log to see if there are any events there that point to the culprit?

Lastly, was a dump file created?  That can help identify the source of the problem.

The Event Log and dump file may not be useful if it crashes before those can be updated.
