Default My "restarting" computer issue.

Hello,

My name is Pat and im having a really annoying problem with my computer. Basically, whenever i play a game my computer will restart itself randomly. At first i thought that the problem with my computer was that it was overheating, However, when i have my window open and my fan trained on the computer, my computer will still restart itself. Although the description above is obscure, i would really appreciate it if anyone could give me some possilbe causes for my problem.

thanks.

Does it make a "beeping" noise right before it shuts down?
