Does this happen when using any application or just on the Internet, or with a certain program running?
Post some machine info too please, and let us know if you have recently installed any new hardware or software.
If you had everything...Where would you put it?

Your cpu could be overheating. Make sure the fan on the cpu's heatsink is running decently fast. The heatsink shouldn't feel too hot to touch when the fan is running.
Open the case, and feel the heatsink at intervals during boot and running programs etc. and see if it gets really hot just before you crash. Having the case open while you are running will help to keep things cool, and may forestall crashing until later.
Just BE CAREFUL and don't kill anything with static (touch the case before touching anything inside) and don't kill yourself either. If you aren't sure about safety, maybe you should take it to a service center.
