It's overheating!...more info required.

What make and model of computer?
What age is it?

Do you hear your fan running when you boot up?

If it is a laptop it most probably choked with dust around the intake fans. The CPU heatsink will require cleaning to get rid of the build up of dust.

If it is a tower/desktop, take the case off and use compressed air to clear away all the dust inside, especially on the heatsink and the cooling fan(s).

Post back with more information.
