What sort of temperatures is your computer running at? It may well be an overheating issue.

Try this, it should tell you your CPU and other temps - then post them here if you think they look a bit hot.

Does the computer turn off seemingly randomly or just after you've had it on a while? If it's just after you've had it on a while then leave it until just before it usually turns off (since it'll probably be a lot cooler once you've first booted it up.)

Try speedfan, that's another alternative.

WOW 80c, you have a cooling problem there. My cores are always in flames because speedfan has low temps set to it. But what kind of cooling are you using?

Temps that high probably mean that a fan or fans are not spinning or air vents are blocked off. You might want to try something like this.
