I have some extra cash to fix it, but don't know the problem. Has to be inside the computer. Sony Vaio desktop.

The computer overheats when I watch videos or have too many pages open, then the computer shuts off by itself.
What part should I get from Frys Electronics?

If it's turning off cus it's overheating you might need a new, better fan, or need to add another fan to it.

Yea it shuts down after reaching a certain temperature. Check if ur fan has a bunch of dust in it.

If it's really dusty, clean it out. Leave it open and if it overheats, see if the fan is cutting off or not.

How often you de-dust your PC? I recommend buying compressed air and using a vaccum to suck up the dust out of your fan and your whole computer.

do you know what specifically is overheating? might just need to reseat the heat sink to the processor w/ quality thermal paste if dusting it out doesn't solve the prob
