When I play music videos or games the sound starts getting distorted and or my PC stops and restarts or else it frezzes and have to reboot. I have had the sound card tested and it is ok. Things have worked fine for 3 months or so and then started playing up.I am running Win98se, yamaha sound card,AMD K6 2 500 cpu, 64 mb mem, S3 trio 2x/3d 8mb video.

I had the same problem with my AMD K6-2, everytime I ran processor intensive programs the comp used to freeze or restart.
First thing you should check is if your CPU's fans are working coz an overheated CPU causes the computer to either freeze or shutdown or restart. I think its a safety feature with current motherboards. Secondly get updated drivers for your motherboard and graphics card.
I solved my problems by doing the above and it was caused by the fan connectors being loose. The drivers i updated just to have Windows running smoothly..
