You can go to the shop that sells computer accessories. Alternatively, you can try to move your computer to more open spaced area where sufficient air can flow into the desktop. Also, try to remove dust inside the desktop as dust can block the air vents and fans of the desktop, causing overheating.

Since it might be from the cpu try putting some thermal paste under the cpu.

Remove the cpu, add some paste under it and replace it.

Thermal paste creates a shield or mirror if you would under the cpu to reflect the heat off the cpu to reduce the immence heat. I've used it before and it REALLY works, because when mine restarted, i used thermal paste and it never restarted again :relaxed:

Hoped it helped :relaxed: post back
