Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
Had a similar problem. Whenever I played then it would after just freeze and shutdown. Was also getting really hot. The solution was real simple:
At the rear left corner of my 7720 is the heat exhaust vent. Right next to it is the power supply socket. The end of the power cable (jack end) had a large plastic casing around it, larger than a AA battery. Because of how the laptop was set up on my desk this casing around the cable lay right against the exhaust vent and stopped the hot air from escaping. All I did was turn the power cable so it faced right instead of left and, hey presto, all was sorted.

I understand that your notebook heating up and restarts automatically.
The issue might be with the Fan of your notebook or Hard Drive .
To isolate the issue please perform hard drive self test. This will display whether your notebook hard drive is good or have gone bad. If the hard drive self test result is bad/fail. Then, I am afraid that you need to replace hard drive of your notebook.
To perform Hard Drive self test, here are the steps.
1. Restart the notebook.
2. Tap the F10 key as soon as the HP logo appears.
3. Using the arrow keys, navigate to Dignostics Menu and start the Hard Drive self test.
4. Once finished, navigate to Exit Menu, select "Exit Discarding Changes".
If you are using XP operating system in your notebook. Then in the 3rd steps navigate to Tools instead of Diagnostics.
If you find the above information is useful then please rate me.
