This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).

Certainly sounds like overheating. Have you looked inside the case lately for a bit of maintenance - like checking/cleaning dust/fluff etc and making sure all fans are running properly, and that all vents are clear to allow smooth through-flow of air.
