A bad PSU and heat created by dust and inadequate ventilation are two possible causes.
Can you provide your PSU (power supply) details - brand name and output please.
Have you checked the power connections on the MB are securely in place, these may include a 4/8 pin 12V ATX type and 20/24 pin main power type connection also check that all other connections are secure including the fans and if you have an add on video card remove it, blow out the slot, reseat the card securely, do the same with the Ram and their slots.

Download Speedfan and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.
(this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

I suggest that if you can borrow a PSU of the same or a higher output or have your PSU tested by a Tech with the correct equipment and knowledge.

If you need to purchase a new PSU use a calculator such as http://www2.corsair.com/psufinder/ (example only) for guidance.
Another fan will help as will tidy cable management.
