trouble computers shuts off


Help!!!! This has been going on for months now and nobody I know seems to be able to help me. When I play downloaded games, after about 5 - 10 minutes, my computer just shuts completely off. No trouble starting it back up. I just recently discovered it does this when playing any online games using active x or shockwave. Also did this while watching a tv show on an episode player you have to download. I can play any other online games with java. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. I really miss playing my downloaded games. A lot of them have been paid for and it really ticks me off I can't play them. Thanks

While I do agree that a replacement is always best (antec: my fav and #1 recommend'n) don't forget to read the destructions. I was having a fit over a pristine P4 (back in the day) with a sweet Intel945 board (for the time) because it kept Restarting (possible APCI issue?) or, if I was lucky, Blue Screening... I figured it was MS crapy code (I still won't touch vista) and delivered the PC. First day out, phone rings. You got it, the customer. We talk, he tells me how it's acting. I go pick it up... yada yada
LONG STORY SHORT
The four pin power plug wasn't plugged into the Mobo like it should be!! I'm a dee-dee-dee
