    Sounds like you are experiencing overheating. Next time you have it on try pointing a fan towards the vents to help circulate some of the heat out.

Your system coolers should be positioned in an open area, it makes possible the cold air to change with the hot air. when the system is overheating, it turns off to protect hardware.

try cleaning your coolers: turn the back on/off switch OFF . then, hold the eject button and turn the on/off switch ON (while holding the eject button !!)

your coolers will run in maximum speed for a while, it should set them free from any dust inside the system .

First thing to try is a video reset.

you can reset the system to its factory default setting by holding the power button down for quite a while, the system should beep two or three times and then shut down.

Video card might be broken, might be able to replace for about $110. If the game is Street Fighter 4, press start rapidly to skip intro and don't play Arcade mode. Can only save using auto-saves after challenges.

Listen to the PS3... if you hear a fan running, your good. The fan is usually quite loud. It does look like your system is overheating. It is one of the older models, therefore Sony didn't learn from its mistakes much before they made it.
