I am having a problem with my custom computer. It randomly shuts off instantly and wont turn back on until I mess with the 24-pin plug in thingy from the power supply. I have to repetitively hit the power button a wiggle the 24-pin plug in the motherboard slot to get it to turn on. Once it turns on I can play for like a day and then it randomly shut down and I have to try it again... please.

From your description, it sounds like you have a bad contact point in the PSU's 24 pin connector or the MB's 24 pin header.
