I'm having issues with my desktop computer, sometimes it boots normally to windows,but is very inconsistent. I believe it could be a the power supply, but I have no way to test it. A few things I have noticed:

* The computer sometimes boots, but I get BSODs. It requires a few restarts for it to stay "stable" and as long as I don't turn the computer off I can use it with no issues for many days.
* When it doesn't boot the bios screen doesn't show.

Any ideas?

PSU perhaps but check motherboard capacitors first.
