I Need Help!

I just built my first pc but my pc keeps shutting down by itself after being on for a few minutes. I know it's not because of heat as the cpu is only heating up to 40C. I'm just really confused and frustrated with my pc especially after saving up the money to build the pc only for it to not work properly. If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it!

Without any knowledge of the specs we can't really pinpoint a specific problem. However, it would seem the culprit might be the PSU. Make sure you have a sufficient enough PSU to power your system. Are you getting any blue screens of death?

Okay so I'm running an amd athlon x4 950 paired with a gt 1030 with 8 gb of ddr4. My power supply is an EVGA 500W Bronze.

Im also not getting any BSOD. it just shuts down. Like if you were to just hold the power button or yank the cord.

Try unplugging all of the power cables and plugging them back in again. Something might be loose.

What model motherboard do you have? Are you able to return the parts you bought? You could return the Athlon X4 950 and GT1030 and get a Ryzen 2200G with integrated vega graphics which will perform better and cost less.
