It sounds like you have a hardware problem not a software problem.
NVidia says you should have at least a 300W power supply in your
computer for the GeForce GT 430. If you have that, my guess is that
your video card is overheading -- it could be that the fan on the video
card isn't working, or perhaps the fan in the computer case isn't
working, or that the inlets for the fans on the computer case are
clogged. And there's always the possibility that the computer's power
supply is defective.
P.S. ATI/AMD Radeon video cards are as good as NVidia GeForce video
cards and ATI's current video drivers are finally as good as the NVidia
video drivers, so depending on the particular model, you might be much
better off with the ATI Radeon. See the graphics chart at the end of
one of the "Best Graphics Cards For The Money" articles at
www.tomshardware.com for approximate relative rankings.
