I had similar problem with older PC. Problem is probably with your CPU or Graphic card. It's not nececary mean that it's dying. It could be just overheating which sometimes happens if the PC is older.
You can install some programs like http://openhardwaremonitor.org/ or similar, and check your temperature. Usualy CPU is problem. So start with it. If you see that temperature is rising than you found a problem. In that case you need to open your PC and replace thermal paste on your CPU. If you don't know how to do that and if your PC is under waranty go to service.
Same thing for GPU (graphic processing unit)
I hope this helps.

So I managed to get the download the program and try it before my computer shut down and i watched it for a while before my computer froze but weirdly my computer didnt freeze this time. Its been open and turned on for about 20 mins now and hasnt frozen up until now. I dont want to just leave it alone and hope it doesnt happen again so I'm wondering what else it could be? I'm no technician but all the numbers for the temperatures and stuff looked fine to me, none were too far over what it said the max limit is supposed to be. If you need I can attach a picture of the readings it's been giving me in case I missed something.
