i would start by opening it up and cleaning the dust from the CPU fan and heat sink assembly.....if you think you are capable it is best to remove the fan to do this

UPDATE: Solved the problem by cleaning everything.
QUESTION: Why would dust make the computer unbootable?
Thank a lot for the help mate

the computer is overheating so it turns itself off to prevent damage,
the dust affects the airflow, less airflow means less cooling

Im having the same problem as the original poster. PC is switching off after a period of use, then restarts immediately, and then goes into a constant cycle of switching off then restart.
I have given it a good clean out inside but its not solved the problem.
I think the problem is related to overheating, as the problem ocurred more quickly when the room temperature is high. On cold days you can use the PC for a hour or more before the problem arises. In the summer it less that 5 minutes.
The PC has a overclocked processor and i was wondering if this is part of the issue and if i could reduce the clock speed to aleviate the problem. I don't know what settings in the bios need changing to do this though.
Attached is an image of the PC spec
Also I have Speedfan program data included in the image showing hardware operating temperatures. The System and CPU temperatures get to 50-55C and this is when the restart problem occures.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciate.
