Hi Jashan :)
Just checked your specs in your profile and I believe you have an idea of what may be the cause of the issue;

Non branded 450W PSU!!!

A very strong possibility yes, the best course of action is for you to try a known
good power supply unit, can you borrow one from a friend? If not you will need to
have a tech test your PSU, some will do this for free others will not.
Check out the informative post by Digerati @ http://www.geekstogo...-a-psu-problem/
There is a very basic test you can do with the PSU but as PSUs put out different rates
of power +3.3V, +5V and +12V etc any one of these may be bad so the test is not conclusive.

While the PSU being underpowered is a definite possibility, what does the following mean?

My PC was also suffering from heat problems then i buyed new cup cooler it make it good


When was the last time all the fans were cleaned in the unit?
Are all the fans working?
Is the CPU fan working?
