Sudden Shutdowns

Gateway Lx6810-01 desktop

Specs: Windows Vista
For about a week now my computer has been spontaneously shutting down at random times. The shutdowns occur very suddenly as if the computer has lost power. There are no warnings or any popups whatsoever. I can restart the computer normally and it will seem to be perfectly normal again but then in 10-20 minutes, the computer shutdowns again. I have opened the computer to check if any of the fans are broken or if things are being overheated, but everything seems to be normal hardware-wise. I have scanned my system with Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes but have found nothing. I don't know why but the computer never turns off when I'm playing a game (just played for 3 hours with no shutdown), but when I'm on the main desktop, it'll happen every 10 minutes give or take. It also doesn't seem to turn off when I have the case open O_O, which is what I'm doing right now.

Go to bios and check cpu temp, and also check the voltage +3.3v,+5v,+12v if there are fine.
