Exclamation Computer suddenly restarts [Comaq; Precorio; win2KPro]

The compaq is a lil old, when your playing any 3D game it will suddenly restart after a short period of time.

I updated Direct X from 7.0 to 8.1, and i also updated the Sis 560 display drivers to no aveil.

I'm beginning to think it might be a ventilation problem, i check the specs on the games i was running, just some cheap shooting games, and i cleared the specs, 126 ram/533mhz/only a 4mb display adapter, but the game runs fine for a lil bit, then it just reboots

i also started a game, and ALT-TABed out and did a CTRL-ALT-DEL to see the system resources and they appeared to be fine.

ITs not my comp, but a friend of mines so i dont have direct access to it all the time, just wondering if anyone else had this same time of problem and if they had any remedies.

Thanks in advance.
