    Sounds like an overheating problem. If your PC is a desktop, open it up and clean out all the dust bunnies especially on the CPU fan/heatsink assembly with a can of compressed air. Hold one of the fan blades to keep it from overspinning and ruining the bearings while blowing the assembly out. Keep the can of compressed air vertical while using it. Also blow out the power supply and video card fans.
