Computer beeps and restarts

Specs: Windows XP Service Pack 2, AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2400+
Lately, my computer has been acting up. Whenever I'd play a game (in this case, World of Warcraft) after about 5 or 10 minutes, the whole computer would just crash. It would restart and boot back up. After trying many things to try and stop it from happening, I finally uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. This solved my problem for about 3 days but then things went back to the way it was. I tried uninstalling it, but everytime i try to reinstall it, about half way through (if that), the computer crashes. Sometimes a beeping noise occurs that usually means that it's about to shut down.

No error message at all displays when the computer shuts down, even though I've already disabled the automatic restart in Control Panel.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Note that I'm not too knowledgable with computers, so if there are any specific directions that apply to your suggestions, please describe where I should go or what to do in order to do these actions.

Thanks in advance.

Overheating maybe ???

Have you checked your temp(s) in the BIOS ?

There is only one satisfying way to boot a computer.

I did what you said, but this time when it restarted, a blue screen came up that displayed some steps like "check all newly installed hardware and software for viruses". Crap like that. So I couldnt even see what time I exactly crashed.

I looked in the system tools thing, but found nothing abnormal that could've possibly been the crash.

Any other suggestions of what to do?
