Look at power issues... a overheating system could cause an automatic offing. Are the fans turning?

If this is a laptop, check the batteries and the fan.

If it is a notebook, it could be a faulty motherboard or loose connection on the motherboard. Reseat the processor. Check docking screws on the back and verify that the battery is charging. On a desktop, some of the same applies. Verify all cable connections internally, and reseat all of the cables and components on the MB.

Before replacing anything I would also check the Power Management settings in your BIOS, if they are active make sure you disable them. These have in the past often caused issues with the power management services in Windows 9x OS's, especially in laptops.
