Hello

I have a Windows XP, 512 mb, GeForce 5200 graphics card. I have recently been playing some games on my computer, and from no fault of my own, my computer restarts 20 - 30 mins into my game. Could you please tell me what I should do to stop this.

Thx

This is most likely due to overheating - especially as the weather is now getting warmer.

It may be a good time to clean out the inside of your machine to free it of gunge and detritus that inevitably collects there. You should also check that all fans are operating correctly.
