I have tried that before: unplugging everything but the mb from the psu (dvd drive and hdd) and powered on - same result, shuts off.

Haven't changed any bios settings - stock tower

Just keep the computer running in the BIOS, find the hardware page where it shows voltages and temperatures, keep an eye on temps. Let me know what the temp is reading right before it shuts off.

I looked all over the bios and couldn't find a health monitor/sensor anywhere. And the computer won't stay on long enough to download a program like everest

Are you able to swap in a known good PSU for testing purposes? See if you can bother someone and borrow it (family, friends, neighbours). That should help you pinpoint the issue.

As long as it has all the right connections it will work fine. Obviously if you can help it, try and get one that has similar or better specs (Watts, Amps, etc).

I'm returning the PSU for a new one, should take a week or more. I'll let you all know as soon as I try the new one
