that's almost assuredly an overheating issue, and most likely the CPU.

Overheating and Power Testing
BurnInTestPro is a great app. I would suggest getting a fan for your video card. Also what is the wattage of your PSU?

Did you check your Event Logs in the My Computer >[Right Click] Manage Window? Are there any errors under the system log?

Look Up Your Video Card Specs!
If you are running that video card you are going to I would suggest running at least a 650W PSU.
Try changing the CMOS battery which looks like a cent on the mother borad.
Even i had the same problem worked for me.
Best of luck
I have the Same Problem
I too have the same problem and it all occured after a power outburst that happened a few days ago
my smps (PSU if u like to call it that) stopped working i took it to my living room and connected it to a power outlet and turned it on and BOOM!! it blasted and caused a blackout in the neibourhood!!! then i removed the smps and changed it into a similar SMPS (i bought it) and connected it and then onwards i had this wierd problem when ever i put "load" on my computer as in ask it to convert a video,play assasin's creed,multi-task...it crashes and i have to turn off my computer (the wall outlet) and turn it back on after a couple of seconds....i can gaurantee you the PSU is not the problem i suggest you change your mother board bcuz i think thats wat the problem is....(even for me same problem, but i probably will change my ram too...)
First, this thread is almost 3 years old. Don't necro old threads.
As for my original post. The issue was the powersupply. Putting a load on the computer demanded more power than it could handle so it was shutting off. As a result it also cause my video card to fail, likely do to the fluctuating power and constant hard-kills.
I ended up buying a new video card and stronger power supply and the computer has been running great since.
Lastly, I have a second computer which now is also exhibiting similar behavior to your post where if it holds a load using more than about 80% cpu for more than about 10 minutes it will crash. Without a load, or with only a breif load, it works fine endlessly. Luckly for me, this system is a home server I run so it hardly ever sees any heavy traffic and when it does go out I will just re-start it (also having to turn off the power-supply switch for 10 sec, then turn it back on. Normal power button will not start it).
I suspect this computer is also suffering a power-supply related problem (computer is over 8 years old at this point) but as I does not affect me that much I've not looked into it too much.

buy new computers with the advice of someone who is involved in this business, and the best service to ask what computer to buy and then you have less problems. and 8 years and is similar enough to withstand the computer and it works.
