Question about ASUS COMPUTER INTL P5SD2-VM MBD MATX LGA 775-SIS 672 968 VGA FETH (610839154845) Motherboard
Most likely, the CPU is getting too hot. Use a can of compressed air ($7 Radio Shack, Best Buy, Office Depot, etc.) and clean all vents, heat sinks, power supply, etc.
If it still happens, apply Thermal compound ($6 same places)between the CPU and the heat sink. Mke sure the CPU is "locked down" - look at the wire lever holding the CPU in place.
Could be your very active Anti-Virus program. If it is Symantec / Norton ... I recommend removing it if your license is close to expiration. Install Grisoft FREE AVG.

Check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose
If it is it will have to be re-seated.
If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)
DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.
You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.
DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU
Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on
Here are some basic instructions
Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.
If everything went to plan you should now be back in business
