Random hard locks.

My Windows 2003 PC with a Matrox Parhelia randomly hard-locks when I'm running any 3D application. Does anyone know what might be the cause?

I've installed what I believe to be the latest, Win2k3-native, drivers. I used to think it was a problem with World of Warcraft, but Second Life displays exactly the same problem.
I'm running in Triplehead mode and can't take the 3D accelleration down even a single notch without things screwing up.
It might not be the graphics, I guess. The PC has an AMD CPU and one of the nForce family of motherboards. It uses on-board sound and both on-board NICs. I can't remember all its details, but if someone has a really good lead, I can pop it open and look.
