I don't think so, although that's what I first suspected, and I do think it runs a bit hot at times, but no evidence of overheating that I can see. Current system temps are 32/56/52 deg C, 32 deg C for the GPU, and a reported 0 deg C for the CPU.
Is your computer over heating?
Not that simple, I'm afraid: it's a Gateway DT5426E chassis, but everything else has been upgraded: gigabyte ma785gm-us2h motherboard with an AMD Phenom II X4 955 CPU, 4 GB of G.Skill DDR2 SDRAM (4x1GB), NVIDIA GeForce GT 200 GPU, CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W power supply, a few SATA disks, and an extra PCI-slot chassis cooler fan.
Give more details, such as the make and model#, desktop, laptop, etc.

Nice rig - I'm running the same motherboard on my main box.
It's definitely possible that power is an issue, as our wiring is pretty old. As soon as I can, I plan to buy a decent UPS. But maybe you're right: if it's not a heat issue (which it may still be), it could be as simple as losing power, and I don't think any logging or monitoring with out a UPS would detect that. I don't think the heatsink or MB connections are an issue, as I did those myself and checked them during various component installs, but it certainly can't hurt to check them again.
I have a couple of observations/questions for you. Is it possible you are having a power event (brownout, etc) that could be causing/contributing to this? Since this does at first glance seem to be a heat issue, have you checked that the heatsink is securely fastened to the CPU? And lastly, have you reseated all MB connectors?

Yes: the original chassis power supply was replaced a few months ago with the Corsair mentioned earlier. The problem started before this component was replaced.
Have you replaced the power supply?
