Computer switches off automatically and gives 4 beeps (DG41TY m/b)

I recently purchased an intel m/b DG41ty. I was sorking on it when the computer suddenly switched off on its own and gave 4 beeps. I tried to witch it on and was able to do so after 2-3 attempts.

What could be the reason?

According to Intel's manual on this board, that means your CPU is over heating.
See pg71 here:

Make sure all fans are working properly, and make sure the system has good ventilation outside the case (e.g., make sure it's not smothered).
