    The turning off could be heat related. Open the side of the case and turn on the computer. Are all of the fans turning (CPU and case). Replace as needed. Is there alot of dust clinging to the motherboard and other areas. Get a can of compressed air and blow the dust off (don't wipe it off). With the side of the case still off, direct a house fan at the computer insides and see if it runs OK. You may need to add additional case fans to improve airflow. Charlie
