    I have a mac pro running windows xp with boot camp. I installed a few games and they work fine but crash after just a few minutes or so. The fan is on overdrive, I don't know if thats causing it or what. I know my computer can handle these games so I don't know what the deal is.

    anyone with similar issues or have any advice on what could be going wrong?

    Is this home or pro?

    Have you updated windows?

    Also, try updating Direct X to the latest version manually.

    An example of a few of the games you tried would be nice too.

    Do you have antivirus? Turn it off
    Windows Firewall? Turn it off
    Other Windows assorted rubbish? Turn it off

    Lastly, is if one of those crashes where it tell you to send report etc? or a BSOD?
