Have an old computer, (4-5 years) probably should toss it, but it still plays WOW well, so a household member was using it for that purpose.
Earlier in the week, the computer just shut it self off (power shut off)
It seemed to stay shut off for some period of time, not responding to the power button for several minutes. Then it suddenly would try to start up, fans would wind up for a few seconds and then shut itself off again.
Thought it was the power supply, so put in a new one this afternoon, and again, it shut itself off immediately upon start up.
Anyone have any suggestions? Otherwise it is likely going on the ash heap.
BTW, only has a 400W power supply, but that's what was in there since I got the box, so I replaced it with the same. I could go back and get a 520 if that really might help.
