We need some information regarding the computers hardware, please download then run Speccy and post the resultant url for us, details here
The one item that Speccy cannot tell us is the brand and model name or number of the power supply, if you know the details can you post them with your next reply.
Overheating and a poor PSU are common causes of the issue that you describe so we should check those first;
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)
Download then run HWMonitor and post a screenshot so that we have a comparison to the Speedfan results, details from here

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing...
