for a few months now suddenly hubbys pc would just shut down for no reason (maybe a curse of WoW lol) but i went to move his pc to make room for him with another guy who plays WoW so they can be closer together... well now it kinda turns on maybe for 3-8 seconds and shuts down there is a short sound for the spinning for the cd drive but thats it .... question is if i am right want to double check here is the powersupply is dying ... the fan still works but that doesnt always mean that its not dying and the pc is always on and he is a HEAVY WoW player so ... now you understand why i am questioning myself here... pls let me know what ya think ... eather im crazy or not ... lol also i did a direct connection to the wall still did same thing .... thankyou for your help

The power supply would be the first thing in question that you could check...other than making sure all other devices are securely connected in place. also, make sure the CPU is set well, and the fan is clean. I would try to get another power supply that is known to be good, just for testing purposes. If that does not work, you may want to pull all other devices from the computer (hard drive cables, everything but the cpu, ram, and video card) and try to start it up. One of the devices could be causing it to turn off and you will need to isolate it.
