When I open LOTR Online or World of Warcraft my computer crashes but otherwise my computer works just fine, running Firefox and other small programs. I looked inside my computer and the computer supply fan was not spinning and I just want to make sure that could be the reason my computer is crashing before I go buy a new power supply. Is there any way to see if the power supply isn't working all together? It seems to be incredibly hot when it is on I think it might be fried, but if it is still hot then it should still be somewhat working. Thanks.

Hello,
Please replace the power supply if the fan is not working.
If the power supply is over heated the voltage or wattage may be off, causing damage to your mother board or processor.
Changing out to a working power supply now may keep you from a large repair cost later.
