    Sounds to me like it could be a heat issue. If the card is getting too hot, it will freeze up. Check to make sure it is getting proper cooling, or air moving across it. An easy test for this is to run with your sides off your case and see if it locks up again.

    If it still does, try removing it and reseating in back in the AGP slot.
