I had a power suply go bad and replaced it. Now it will only run 10-15 min, if not in heavy use. should I ask it to perform more than one task it gets real slow and shuts off. I tried to get into the bios management but access and knowledge are limited.
Has anyone run into this before? It is almost as if it is overheating. Maybe the processor?
I'm new to this site,but I hope I gave enough info. Beacher

What is the power supplies rating as in how many watts is it? also what brand and also what are your system specs? Also This seems like a hardware problem so i will have this moved to internal hardware. :thumbsup:
