Default Girlfriends laptop shutting down

Alright so my girlfriends laptop shuts down when it runs that fish swimming background and also guildwars. I've got speedfan running to beep when the processor goes above 80c, so that is covered. But yet it sometimes shuts down without a beep. So could the HDD be overheating? or worse, the video card? Anything else it could be. I'd like to be able to play guild wars with her.

It has a AMD turion 1.9GHz, a gig of ram, and I think an ati radeon xpress 200m.
