  8. I guess you can lead a horse to water, but you can't get it to read a FAQ about which computer specs need to be detailed :D

    I don't know if you need a new PSU.

    What model # is your PSU and how old is it?
  10. It's A Dell Optiplex 755 Quadcore

    Yeah go ahead and replace the PSU. Even if it's not the cause of the problem (I'm 90% certain it is tho), a PSU should be replaced every 5 years anyway. $45 for peace of mind.
