BSOD'ish problem playing games

Hey. I've had this problem for quite some time. First off, i just thought i would be problems with heat, but even when i play games from before 2004, my computer crashes. I dont get an BSOD, it just shuts down. And i dont know what to do, other than check all possible solutions. Hope you guys could help.

There are no dump files in the attachment.

Please follow the instructions again and upload the dump.

If you are not getting any dumps follow:
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

One suggestion would be to:
Start Menu\Programs\Avira	Public:Start Menu\Programs\Avira	Public
Uninstall Avira while we are troubleshooting with your bsod problems. Download and install MSE Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows run a full scan once updated.

Let us know if any of your hardware components are overclocked. If yes, you are suggested to restore to factory clocks.

Will wait for your next post.
