hi,

it's been 5+ years since i've bought my dell xps 410. my guess it my power supply is aging/dying. every once a week or so my computer will freeze up and at the same time the fans will start running at full speed. sometimes the computer will just restart randomly also. it's at no particular time or thing executed, nor do i have any malware. this problem has started and has increased with no detectable source. the system has passed all the dell hardware diagnostic tests and the temps are always within a reasonable level. i would like some confirmation that this sounds like a psu problem as opposed to anything else. the computer runs 24/7 and has been pushed by a moderate video cars (9600gt requires 26 amps on the 12v rail which provides 30amps) it's a 375 watt psu and again has been aged 5+ yeas, so i'd like your opinions and advice on what to do?

any help would be appreciated, thanks.
