Answers :

First step would be to remove the case and check all cables, ram chips and add-in cards (in slots on the main board): make sure everything is attached firmly.
\015\012Also check all your fans inside the case and the metal finned heatsincs undernieth them: they need to be operating when the computer is on and free from dirt & dustbunnies all the way into those metal crevaces: a can of canned air will blow the mess from the cracks. Make sure you follow the instructions on the canned air as tipping the can while using it can cause some damage, also make sure the computer is unplugged when you use it.
\015\012The symptoms you are describing could be the system overheating which would shut the computer off to save something from frying.
\015\012Over heating is the #1 cause of system crashes. please try these steps and post again here...
I would try to blow out the pc with canned air. Please take a look at this video for help on how to perform this.
