How do I run chkdsk in safe mode?
Try running checkdisc in safe mode.
Is this a laptop or a desktop? How old is it and when was the last time it was cleaned - internal dust removed?
Shutdowns as you described can be attributable to heat buildup, a failing power supply or even a failing hard drive.

Thanks. Now hopefully it works on my computer. I'll post again after I try this.
Tap F8 repeatedly at bootup to go to safe mode.
Use arrow keys to navigate to Safe Mode, then hit the Enter key.
Log on as Administrator.
Once logged on:
Double click My Computer.
Right click C:
Select Tools tab.
Under "Error Checking" click the Check Now... button.
Check both entries.

I sprayed the back of my HD. I couldn't open my dell because it has some weird ass bolts that I don't know how to open it. The bolts are circular and the tools you probably need to open it with is circular. Anyone know what I can use to open it with?
Assuming you have a processor fan, is it working? Does it seem to be turning slowly? Did you blow the dust out of the heat sink covering the processor? (Using canned air)
This sounds like a heat problem, though it could also be a failing power supply or a memory error.
