First of all, remove the Auto restart on error, to do this:

Go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Startup and Recovery settings -> Uncheck "Automatically Restart".

Second:

Right-click on the desktop, click Properties. Go to the Screen Saver tab, click on Power at the bottom. Make sure that every box says "Never", instead of 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, etc.

Third:

Make sure that you don't have too much running. Press Control + Alt + Delete and make sure that you don't have more than 45-50 processes running, otherwise it will strain your PC.

Finally:

Located in my signature, you'll see "Warez Monster's 4-step process". Click on it, and follow his steps, it takes a while, but it's worth it.

Check the temperature of your CPU in your BIOS, what PSU do you have?

Unhappy

I have just started to get error messages, windows started a scan disc when it restarted blue screen of death. I recently installed a new path for my sound card but since the problems i have rolled back the driver but it didnt make a difference.
