Hi. Thanks for your question.
My first guess on your case would be overheating of your motherboard which could cause "sudden dead".
To proof my guess we need to check temperature on motherboard and chips. There is a very fine and free program that can do this it is called speedfan and you can download it hear ----->http://download.cnet.com/SpeedFan/3000-2094_4-10067444.html
Once you downloaded it and installed have a look at temperatures. Are they rising up to the point when computer shuts down?. If yes it isn't all that bad. On some motherboards speedfan let's you control speed of fans :-). so you can run your PC cooler. If this is not the case with yours please check for dust in the case. Are fans clogged up? Is computer standing in the corner with no access to air? Get it unplugged and brush gently of the dust. Keep it clean and your temperatures should improve.
Hope this help. Good Luck and please do not hesitate to ask more questions if you still didn't find an answer. Thanks
You must replace the processor cooler, the fan on it has aged and it's no longer doing its job properly. And use a good thermal paste.
BTW that software was designed to notify you of the temperatures and nothing more, reinstall it immediately.
Most likely you are looking at a bad motherboard, there is probably a break somewhere in the connections. Check for blown capicators that would be a smoking gun. You can use a different motherboard but it has to be one that is compatible with your CPU. Most motherboards will come with a driver CD so you should be ok. It shouldn't be a big deal with your Operating System or Hard Drive if you replaced your motherboard. Otherwise, you could upgrade to a new system and do a image copy of your HDD to a new computer/HDD. I recommend Acronis True Image makes it really easy.
Make sure that your power switch is connected to the correct pins on
the motherboard. The LED you see lit may be the stand-by power
indicator saying it has power and is waiting for the signal from the
