Just asking, How long have you had that computer?
If the computer is really old then you might have some trouble.
I just did a little reseting of my old computers CPU heatsink and I found a little suprise when i got the CPU and the heatsink out.

I used the twisting method to take off the HSF and then pulled it out, lucky me, the CPU came with it. ^.^
I try to get it off by prying it off with a screw driver and lets just say I almost ripped the Board with all the Pins off.
A few hours with qtips and rubbing alcohol and it didn't come off. Also Scraping the sides of the CPU with a screwdriver to get some thermal compound off.
Got my handy screw driver and a hammer and 5 HARD hits to the side of it and it came off. ^.^
Thermal grease was dried up on the cpu and HSF so it took a while of scraping with my nail and a cloth of alcohol to get it all cleaned.(2 Hours)
And since i scraped my HSF up really bad, I had to lap it.
The rest went nice and smooth. ^.^

All I'm saying is, If the computer is over 5 or 4 years old, be ready to have some work ahead of you.
Not to say its hard to reseat a heatsink, which it isn't, just watch out if it an old computer.(I used a hammer cuz it was only a crapy 1.8Ghz P4) ^.^
Good Luck

Just some additional advice from someone poking their nose in, It wouldn't hurt to see if your computer can use programs like MBM5. Judging from the fact your PC said it was a thermal issue i doubt you have to worry if the program will work or not. A thermal program would greatly help you in the future. I hope your system board isn't like mine, mine turns off like that only if the CPU reaches 100'C.
