Recently I purchased a new PSU and a second GPU for sli. Ever since installing the two components, my computer will shut off anytime it gets bumped. I have checked the psu and made sure all cables aren't loose. Anybody have any ideas why it shuts off when bumped?

You may have dislodged some other connection when you made these changes. I would check ALL the connections to and from the motherboard, hard drives and so on.


It could even be a coincidence. One of my internal hard drives would sometimes show up and sometimes not, and a DVD drive would do odd things. It turned out to be a faulty SATA cable which I replaced. End of problem.

Check the power cable. Sometimes the cable may seem to be fully seated, but really isn't.
