Should have 1 fan on the processor blowing down through your heat sink, have another fan takin air out of ur box .many people make the mistake of making all fans blow in.this disrupts airflow. At least 1 fan must exstract to get good air flow . make shure that the heat sink on your proccessor is thightly seated (no Movement) make shure its not filled with dust stopping airflow to the proccessor. look on your Bios for hardware monitoring , cpu heat should be at 40 to low 50 if it works hard. 60 is overheating and the computer will shutdown to protect the cpu from frying .but the dont allways save the proccessor. this is in degrees celcius. Get back to me on any qeurries

My HP DC7600 - get noisey when starting to plau games
Download and install and run this. You may want to go to the settings tab in the program and change it from metric. Then you can see the temperatures of everything in your computer. You can then launch the game and see what the temps do. It is common for fans to speed up when the computer senses large demand on the processor and graphics cards.

Logs on fine but after you begin working it just shuts down and restarts

This is often a sign of overheating. Does the computer have lots of ventilation? The vents are not clogged? Can you hear fans running? If you don't hear a fan, remove the cover and see if the CPU fan is running. If not, replace it.
Correct as appropriate.

When shutting down there is a click then starts to reboot bits self

Open the case and look for a security chip with a clicker on it, it clicks up and down when the case is opened, sometimes that causes it to reboot, click it down put the lid on and try again.

Otherwise it could be a bios setting (less likely) - check in the bios for the power off settings. Let us know how you get on and be careful in the bios!

Software Utilities are not only the solution for a PC to run proper, you also need to clean the hardware manually and periodically, have you ever cleaned your motherboard or other components during the nine months? if not there might be lots of dust clogged on the chips of the motherboard.. Remove everything which is connected on the motherboard, clean them on by one and don't forget to clean the CPU fan as well. and reconnect everything, and see the result. You also need to clean the bios battery to make sure everything is cleaned. Good luck...

Video Card upgrade

as i can c you have a power suply of 200 wats in your pc (correct me if im not right) the GeForce 9400GT is proved not to use a lot of power. but the problem is that your pc is small and it would not get enough ventilation unless you buy a separate fan try it out
