You should check CPU and motherboard chips for overheating. It DOES 
happen when playing
video for long time. I had similar problems, until I cleaned CPU's 
heatsink from dust.
Usually, when you do nothing, CPU must be as cold as room temperature. 
When you use
it at almost full load, it may overheat, and also may help other 
components on the motherboard
to overheat. While touching anything inside PC - turn it off, pull the 
AC cord off and touch the
ground once, to get off static electricity.
