Question about Nvidia Inno3D nVIDIA GeForce GT240 (1GB SDDR3 PCIE 128Bit VGA DVI and HDMI) PCI Express Video Card
My suggestion is when was the last time you took the side cover off your computer to check the fan on your video card. It sounds like the card is heating up and causing the computer to shut down. You can try blowing out the fan with air to make sure it doesnt have some larges peices of dust/dirt or that the fan isnt worn out. If the computer keeps running with the side cover off that would confirm an over heating problem with the computer. While you have the side cover off blow out the whole machine especially the power supply. Computers are dust magnets. While your using the computer if you have a video game that is graphics intensive run it and keep your eye on the fan of your video card to see if it stops turning at any point.I would also look really hard at the fan or fans on your computers processor to see if it is spinning freely. When your blowing out your computer with air blow air on the fans of your processor to make sure it has no dirt in it and it is spinning freely. If after 30 minutes your computer continues to run with the side cover off then either its time for a new video card or a new fan on your processor. Because one or the other is worn out.
I hope this helps you out.

Tips for a great answer:
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan
is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including
the leads from your ((motherboard to
your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not
faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps
