  6. i think your CPU;s temperature is to high...it may collaps for that it automatically turn off for that"
  7. how can i fix it
  8. Your CPU temps are way to high and it is going into thermal shut down. First make sure the fan is working and the heatsink is seated right. If the computer is dusty I would dust eveything out with a can of compressed air. If everything is fine there than I would look at getting an good aftermarket cooler.
