Well your PC is simply overheating. Do standard checks.
Check to make sure your CPU fan is working properly, at full speed.
Make sure your motherboard and other hardware ain't covered in dust. Give it a good vacuum or use an air compressor to blast away the dust.
Make sure your PC is in an open, ventilated area.

See if it runs any better, if so install temperature software to monitor it.

If it's still going off and over heating rapidly, I assume it's an old PC and the processor has worn itself down.
If you need to buy a new processor, make sure you have a good heatsink + cooling fan before installing it. That will prevent it from overheating in the future.

It's going to keep overheating until your fix it. Why are you continually trying to boot the system? And if you know the CPU is the problem, why are you messing with the RAM?

And you can't do that too many times. It wrecks the processor.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
