I'd talk to those that know your machine and see what they think. I have some ideas but for now can't give advice with only this story.

And clicking it takes me to http://imageshack.us/f/62/4ia.png/ and 404 not found.

The p4m800 is many years old so for now my advice is a good cleaning, replace all heatsink compound, check fans and if the PSU is over 4 years old, replace that with same rating but add 100 more Watts. The reason why is well discussed but given the lack of detail in this discussion I have to move to the usual answer for an old PC.
