Please take it easy, we're not always available to answer questions immediately.

Can you download and install a copy of SpeedFan?

When you open SpeedFan, you'll be presented with a list of your computers temperatures and fan speeds:

Please give us a reading from when you first turn your computer on and another when you're doing something CPU intensive like gunz.

It would also help if you could give an approximate age of the computer and its specifications.

Sorry Kalo93, didn't get an updated post because you edited a previous post.

Anyways, looks like we've isolated the source of your problem. The maximum temperature on you CPU, if I remember correctly, is 70c. Any higher, and your computer will shutdown to save your CPU.

So, what you need to do, or get somebody to do is clean out your computer. Chances are if you open it up, there will be dust blocking the CPU heatsink and fan, which does the job or keeping your processor cool.

If you're relatively comfortable, you can turn your computer off, flip the switch at the back off (if you have one) and then remove the side panel. It's best to use some compressed air to blow dust away from the affected areas.

This is a good general guide to computer cleaning, but not very specific to your needs. I'll try and find something better.
