3 guesses.
1-Your overheating and the computer needs to be cleaned.
Open the case and clean the dust out of the fans and expecialy the CPU fan and heatsink.

2-It can be that one of your memory module has gone bad.
Take one out and try the computer, do that until you've tested each one.

3-The power supply has gone bad.

:Good luck and let us know how you do.

Hi I was having the same problem so I cleaned out the dust on the cpu, and there was a lot of dust. Use a can of compressed air and give your graphics card a good clean as well.
Now i can play FSX without it restarting my pc
