Win XP computer works well on everything except videos. On YouTube download, computer hangs on download and finally reboots itself. On computer games and other videos, computer will do OK for a while, then suddenly reboot itself. Any ideas???

What are your specs?

It might be a heating or a vent problem. There is a setting in the bios that "tells" your PC it's to hot and shuts it down...
Download Speedfan (google it and install) and check your PC's temperatures in real time and mainly when your are having more activity...

Because you said that it happens when you watch videos, download or play games( when PC is more used) that would lead to this conclusion.

You might need to clean your fan. :hello:
