What is driver issues?

Question

My computer will restart whenever. When playing a 3D game like Diablo it will restart more often. When typing or searching the Internet it will restart less frequent. And even when just leaving the computer on and leaving it at its desktop, it will restart but not very commonly. We used to have a DOS computer then we switched to a Windows 98 then Windows XP Professional. We have taken our system in for repairs, clean ups, even got something done to it to get rid of the whole computer and erased everything. As you can tell I do not know much about my computer and all the technical stuff. But I do know that I can rely on you to help me, please? I am really getting tired of playing a game for about 10 minutes then it restarting on me, then loading the computer again and again. Basically all I really want to know is why my computer restarts and how I might be able to fix it. If u could be so kind could u please have a walkthrough for me to follow to do whatever I have to do. OK, thank you alot, cya.
