Why is my laptop shutting down when streaming videos?

Whenever I watch videos online, particularly from Megavideo but even from Youtube occasionally, the whole system will simply shut down. Can anyone offer any help, anyone ever experienced a similar issue? Would a clean system install help matters? Overheating?
It's an eMachines M5312 (yes yes, I know.. my first error was buying eMachines..)
