Computer shuts down by itself.

Specs: Windows XP
Well, okay. Hi!

Ive got a problem ive tried to solve many many times.
The problem is that when im playing games like warcraft III, Counter-strike 1.6, Cod4, Demigod. etc etc. The computer reboots by itself. Hmm this doesnt happen too often by its really anyoing. This started to happen right after ive upgraded my computer and reformatted it. I never got this problem before.

All the time when it reboots it never shows any errors so i dont know what to fix ( if i could ).
But this time just about an 10 minutes ago it showed some blue screen right before rebooting.

And now to the specs.

CPU # AMD Phenom(tm) 9650 Quad-Core Processor, 2304 MHz
GRAPHICS # Gainward GeForce 9500GT 1GB PhysX CUDA
2gb ram memmory
Internal sound card.
hmm what else do you need ?

Right click My Computer,
Properties,
Advanced tab,
Settings button (Startup and Recovery),
uncheck Automatically Restart.
Then the next time you get a blue screen, write down the code numbers and post them here or do a Google search. You can also go to Event Viewer to learn more about the error message, or use a program like Windebug.

Are those the temperatures when playing games or at idle ? If it reboots, check the temperatures in the bios right after that. You might also want to test the RAM with memtest.

You could check the temperatures with a program such as Real Temp. In the BIOS look for a menu like PC Health, though it depends on the particular BIOS.
