    Reset the cmos on your motherboard, use the instruction book to see how.


    If that fails:

    Remove the power supply, and try to test it with another.
  2. Your computer kept switching off, and you're only asking about it now? for all we know it could have been over heating and the motherboard could be shot :(

    hopefully that is not the case, but there's a good chance your powersupply is faulty. try another one if you can :)
  3. Bad power supply, bad motherbaord, or overheating. Check to make sure your heatsink is properly attached to the CPU. Try a different power supply.
