This can be several issues most likely your computer is overheating, or you may have a component that is damaged such as your motherboard There is also the chance that you have gotten a virus, however the latter is less likely You can try purchasing a new power supply that pushes more power, and these can be installed for you most of the time by the place you purchased it You can also have a local store such as Data Doctors run a diagnostics check to see if they can pin point the failure Good Luck!!
