  2. Something is probably overheating and your computer switches off as a safety precaution.

    What can i do??
  4. First logical suspect is PSU...; all power supplies are not equal...

    Best not to have one loaded at even 80% of it's rating....; always better to have 150 watts to spare, than to hope your 500 watt max PSU handles 425 watts consistently, without end...
  5. thats mean i hve to buy a new PSU laa...??
    500 watts or 750 watt?
