I have a computer that is running windows xp. has 4 gb's of ram and a decent cpu from my understanding. its a custom built. I am not 100% sure of the power supplys name, but if I had a good hunch it would be a ROSEWILL power supply. I don't know the exact model though. Anyways, on to my issue. I power on my computer and it will only stay on for like 30 mins top and just automatically shuts the whole computer down. And if I try to restart the computer instantly and continue where I left off with whatever I was doing, it will computer shut down within 30 mins. more like 10 if it is consecutive. I honestly could be wrong but as far as functionally goes my computer is in decent shape, I let it sit for like 3-4 years maybe more, but it still works fine, I don't even think I have any viruses or anything on it. I always was a nerd when it came to taking care of my computer as far as keeping it clean meaning viruses and junk and registrys issues. So what do you think I am dealing with here.
If you need to know the exact model of the power supply im sure there is a way. you would just have to let me know where to go. im guessing in the bios?
Anyways please help me im bored and am trying to get this computer running again. But if I need a new power supply I might trash it and just get a new computer because the hardware is good but not good enough for gaming nowadays im sure. Especially when we talk of games that take high end specs to run.
Anyways please help, Thanks!
