Unhappy Help! I have a problem!! :S

k was up,

I have some serious issues with my computer -_-....
When i start playing games like GunZ or Wolfenstein ET..after about like 5-10 minutes into the game my PC goes into sleep mode .. i was like wtf? it happens in both games...so restarted the computer and it automatically goes into the BIOS and when i go through it ... i go to the section where it says CPU Memory Frequency (or something like that)....it gives me this error about making sure if it is set at the proper frequency ... rite now its at 101/33 or something but i never changed it before, so i don't know what to do?
I'd really appreciate some advice or help! Thanks in advance!

what u mean? r u talking about the settings near the screensaver option?
like when it goes into sleepmode like i cant revive da screen by moving the mouse...
and the overheating, i have two fans so im not sure why would it overheat?
is it because my system cant handle playing games?
[btw... i have celeron/2.4 Ghz/512mb ram]
if it is overheating what can i do about it?
