I am running an old box and recently it has started go go black after it's up and running for a few minutes.  The machine will POST.  After about 2-5 minutes the drives shut down and my monitor kicks over to energy save mode.  At this point, my PC is no longer running.  I still have power to it and the LEDs are light by it is as unresponsive as it would be if it were powered off.  

I don't know what to do next. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Note: My OS is WIN98.

I believe I've answered my own question.  I think it was an overheating issue.  I yanked the cover, pulled the CPU fan and the heat sink.  Cleaned everything and it has been running for about 8 hours.
