Hi. I am having a problem with my computer where it randomly shuts down (like when you hold down the powerbutton for too long and it makes a "click" when it shuts down).

Hope someone can help me.

Without me looking any further - on a glance it looks like the PSU can't supply enough power and cuts out. But I'll take a look and edit this if I find something else out.

 

Edit: The watt consumption seems to be within reasons, but the likely culprit is probably still the PSU. Shiv said that it isn't a great unit so I'll trust him there and say that it's most likely either damaged or just bad quality.

PSU isn't a great unit, both wattage and quality wise. Do you have any other PSUs or other computers whose PSUs you could borrow to test it out?

Sounds like a PSU problem.  Few things to do right away, make sure the PSU fan is still spinning and give it a clean, with it off and unplugged, with air pretty thoroughly (might as well do the system too).  Also, to rule out some thing small like a cord or whatever, replace the PSU cord with a known working one and plug it directly into a wall outlet if it's not.  There is always a chance you have a bad power bar/surge protector/ups.

 

Just comes down to a process of elimination.  Take it from someone who bought a new PSU when they didn't have to, exhaust the stupid stuff.  That being said, if you have access to a known working PSU, do try that first.  A bad PSU can be damaging depending on how it faulted.

Changed my PSU today, and I still have the same problem. What else could it be?

What model did you switch to?

I changed to a Corsair CX850M, got rid of my power bar and changed the cord for the PSU.

I ended up changeing the motherboard and psu

and that worked

Do you mind saying if the new psu had a higher wattage? Do you think it was simply the mobo or did changing the psu help in any way?
