Windows Keep Shutting Down

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

Ive got a P4 2.6GHz Sony Vaio which is running XP. The PC keeps
shutting down when i try and watch a video etc. for more than 10-15
mins. Ive had this problem for a while but it has been happening more
frequently since i added 512mb of RAM.

Does anyone know how i can fix this?

Thanks in advance

    Youre video adapter plays a larger part in that than board ram,more memory
    on the adapter,better youre video will run.128mb is about min.,while most
    gamers/video editing run 256mb,currently mfgs are about to retail 512mb
    cards.
