My computer shuts down randomly

Dell Vostro 1000 notebook

Specs: Windows XP
Whenever I watch video's on any website other
Youtube, my blasted laptop shuts down. Or if I
run a
torrent program simultaneously with a media
(VLC), it shuts down. At first I thought that it
overheating, and since then I've kept it cool,
but it still
shuts down. Which leads me to think that it's
much strain on the processor. But something
as basic
as watching an online video??? Any solutions?

One moment please.
What kind of internet connection do you have? How much RAM do you have? What programs are open when this error occurs?
What do you mean by shutdown? Does it say shutting down or does it just turn off?

"since then I've kept it cool"

How did you go about doing that? And do you have a software programs that monitors the temps so that you know whatever it is you did actually made a difference?
