When I am on the internet..say after about 30 minutes I will be right in the middle of doing something and my computer just shuts completely down. I dont' mean it logs off. I mean it just goes completely out..computer screen is black and the tower shuts off. Does anyone have any idea as to why this happens. I usually have to wait about 20 minutes before it will work properly again. If I try to turn it back on immediately...during startup it will shut off again, but if I wait 20 minutes it will work fine for about 30 minutes and then it shuts off again. Please help!

Quick, educated guess would be a power supply

How long has it been since you cleaned all the dust from the Computer?

I would recommend a shop vac on reverse, and blow all the dirt/dusk /crud from the case. If this does not solve the problem, I would look at the power supply also.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
