The previous shutdown was due to Thermal Event (Overheating)

Why I am getting this error” The previous shutdown was due to Thermal Event (Overheating)”?

My computer restarts after every 10 minutes and then it doesn’t load windows after restarting.

I have a P4 3.0GH S478 computer with D865GBF motherboard. Ram is 1.48GB.


I applied thermal grease and changed the fan & Power Supply too but again I have the same problem.
