Advent T9000 keeps reseeting when playing a game on it

I've recently started playing Hitman: Blood Money, and my computer has restarted 3 times today. I havent had the same problem with Wolfenstein or Half Life 2. Could it be because I have the graphics settings too high?

Sounds like the system is possibly struggling and overheating, do the fans come on hard bwfore it restarts ? Does the laptop system feel warmer than when playing HL2 ?

Yeah the fans are pretty loud when it restarts, but they're always pretty loud when my computer first starts up. Btw, its a desktop, not a laptop.

Is there anything I can do to keep the temperature down? I cant even save mid-level and come back to the same point, so playing the game is pointless at the moment.

Do you have a spare, higher end PSU you try out? If it's not overheating it could be failing PSU.

Try removing a side panel, if it's overheating that may help a little.
