Some "500W" PSUs are better than others. If you got a no-name brand or a model from one of the passable product lines even from popular brands, its output might be too noisy or not stable enough, causing various protections to kick in and either shut the computer down or reset it.

Are you suggesting I get a new PSU?

I was implying that you should tell us what PSU you have in there so someone could tell you how good/bad it might be.

Alternately, you can have a look at this list:

If you find your PSU in the 5th category, yes, you most likely need a new PSU, preferably from the 3rd group or better.
