That error definitely indicates that your system is overheating. Get a can of compressed air and dust out the interior. Check the fans to make sure that they are not bogged down with grime and dust. Make sure all internal fans are working properly.

If this continues to shutdown after cleaning and you are sure that all the fans are in working order you might try peeking at the heatsink/fan area (inside the case) and look at the cylinders that are marked by an X on top. Are any of these bloated or do they appear orange on top? If so, this is your problem.

I believe that the capacitors on this particular model were manufactured incorrectly and if this is the problem then you will need a new motherboard...

Last shutdown due to thermal event


When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

Freezes during start up


My first plan of attack would check
Second the event log in the BIOS, looking for a heat event. Make sure your fans are spinning, while you are in there get a can of compressed air and blow out any and all dust. Sometime it becomes necessary to remove the processor and put a little Artic 5 between the cpu and the heat sync.I would check out the video card, the easiest thing to try first is to remove and update the video drivers. I still lean towards the heat event Idea...
Hope this give you a headstart in the correct direction. Good luck,
PS, if you are the one shutting it down and rebooting, look to the Video Card,

D300a shutdown


With the message you are getting on your screen,there are couple things you need to do.First thing you need to do is make sure your cooling fans are all working if they are your next step is to go out and get a can of compressed air to clean the heat sink on the processor and any other cooling fan that needs to be cleaned before doing this unplug your computer to be on the safe side.If the heat sink looks clean you may need to remount the heat sink using thermal paste.Remember after cleaning your computer try to clean it often this is one thing that most computer user's overlook.

Fan Malfunction??


Sounds like a heat issue, pop the side of your case open and turn on the PC, are there fans not moving? Take a close look at your processor fan if there is one.
