Power Supply Problem....

My computer kept turning off the other day, and it just started working right now after two days of it being unable to turn on. I'm pretty sure it's the power supply, but right now I'm doing a very thorough malware infection "investigation". However, I'm just wondering if anyone knows how to fix the power supply problem [if that's what it is] besides buying a new one?

PSUs are not repairable and neither is it advisable to try. Just make sure the fan grill is free of fluff and dust build-up, but other than that leave well alone. For one thing you would first have to decide which part of it needed repairing -- this requires specialist diagnostic tools. Not worth the risk or trouble. Replace it, and it's usually a good idea to replace it with a higher-wattage unit than the old one so it's never running near it's limit.
