Question about PC Desktops
This sounds like an overheating issue. You need to open the case and check for dust and clean it out. If dust is not the issue then the heatsink compound will need to be changed, this will involve removing the proccessor heatsink and fan, removing the old compound and applying new.
If you are familiar with the BIOS you can check your processor heat readings just prior to the shut down if you can.
