Default Machine locks HARD when playing any video

It doesn't matter which player I use mplayer, VLC or flash player (youtube), the machine locks sometimes in matter of 1-2 minutes sometimes it could survive 30 min. And It needs to be powered off by pulling out the AC cable. If I don't pull and replug the cable the machine boots (I can see the HDD and DVD being initialized) , but nothing shows on the screen (LG TV shown - no signal). I have no such problems under Windows XP so it should not be a hardware problem.

Driver: 256.53 and 260.19.44 same thing happens.

vgapci0: <VGA-compatible display> port 0xc800-0xc87f mem 0xfd000000-0xfdffffff,0xd0000000-0xdfffffff,0xfa000000-0xfbffffff irq 18 at device 0.0 on pci1
