    check to see if cpu fan is running properly & heatsink is somewhat cool to touch. also clean the fins of the cpu heatsink. check that all the cans(capacitors) are flat top not domed. what is your performance level in resources. check for spyware with adaware se or spybot s&d

    How often does it reboot itself. Before doing anything major go to the bios and check the temps if they are high 70+ take a look inside and see if you have dust clogging things.

    Sounds like you need a PSU with a higher wattage(w)
    Howmany watts do you have in your current PSU .try unhooking couple of devices if you have 2 CD roms un plug the power wire of it andd on the Floppy disk and if you have one of those fanyc temprature thing take off the power of it too then try playin a game or simply borrow a PSU from someone which has more watts than yours and try

    also try testing your memory with memtest or another program, faulty ram is a cause of ALOT of restarts
