For the past few weeks my PC has been shutting off at the bootscreen occasionally and shutting off at random times if I have the computer on for too long. In the past I have seen this and it was a result of a bad power supply. However, I have been short on money because I am a student so I have just been dealing with the problem and turning it back on until windows starts up (this usually happens on the 4th or 5th try). Today it happened and I tried turning it back on a few times but now the monitor is not getting a signal from the PC. I am running a Gforce 7900 video card, not the onboard video. Could this be the powersupply, video card, or possibly that the video card is just pulling too much for the power supply to handle? I am kind of desperate here because I have papers due, right now I am using my sisters computer to post this.
