    Well, I would suggest removing all the connections / hardware within your PC case and putting them back together carefully.

    And as suggested in the post above, do post your system specs.

    Some possibilities as of now:

    CPU overheating
    Failing PSU

    I have two other guesses:

    1. Your computer is overheating. Is this a laptop or a desktop?

    2. If you're using the beta version of Windows 7, it will shut off after an hour of use. You can tell if you have the beta version by looking at the bottom-right of your screen. It will have a little message saying it is a test/beta build of Windows 7.
