Hello.

I've posted this in another topic since it was similar, but I believe it may be of a different nature so I'm posting this in its own topic.   The above error seems to occur whenever my CPU usage is above 30% or so (found using task manager) for more than 4 minutes. An example would be when playing a game, or viewing a Flash-intensive website.

One last thing - if I try to start the PC up again straight after it's done the above and shut itself down, it turns itself off again after a couple of seconds.

I have to wait like a minute before I'm able to turn it back on again without any hassles.

Ok I'm done now Smiley

Hi Ravaa
This may be an overheating issue or possibly your power supply unit.
You can open the chassis and take some canned air and blow out all the dust from within the fans and aroung the CPU.  
How many case fans are inside your chassis?

Hmmm, canned air you say? I'll give that a shot.

As for the fans, I've got one "case" with the fan inside, although I don't know how many fans ther are inside this case itself. I'm assuming this means I've got just the 1 case fan.

Turns out I've got two fans, excluding the fan on the motherboard.

And just to update, so far so good. After cleaning the fans out with the canned air, it seems that everything is going smoothly. Thanks for the help!
