My computer powers down on its own!

Specs: Windows XP
My computer just powers off when it wants to! When i go to a site that has alot going on, or when I try to play my game (WOW) it powers off! For basic internet surfing it will stay on all day! Can someone tell me what might be the problem? Dont think it over heats, i have good fans.

Thanks,
Jesus

Really sounds like a heat problem. Look in the bios to see if they are shown there. If not download a motherboard monitoring program like SpeedFan.
Usual idle temperatures are:
System: 30sC
CPU: 40sC

Your right my CPU temp is 80+, when I do something heavy it shoots to over 100 and then shuts down! Is there a certain thing I can do/buy to help my CPU heat??

Thanks,
Jesus
