Hello xmela...

Your CPU is running way too hot! You either need to get yourself a can of compressed air from a local office supply store and give your machine a good cleaning, or you should see about replacing your CPU Cooler with a little more effective one. I'd be willing to bet that it's the CPU overheating that is causing your shutdowns.

Hey watsup wannabe1 and xmela....

Yeah it looks like your computer doesn't have good enough resources and is over heating. try upgrading your RAM or your Heat Sink so that your computer doesn't turn off. Also, when running heavy games, dont run a lot of background programs as this also causes your CPU and Hard Drive to heat up a bit.
