    Default

    First two guesses are Power Supply or Heat
    If a fan is bad be careful...seems your heat protection may be working and trying to protect your computer from serious damage
    (if heat is the problem)

    Start by removing the case covers and using air to clean the fans and the case..check that all the fans are running
