    Anyone good with pc jargon, im ok but having problems and need abit of advice.

    My pc is randomly turning itself off and just cutting out, it also fails to start sometimes and has false starts e.g starts then just turns off immediatly.

    I think it could be a faulty power supply or my pc is being overclocked!

    I ran my motherboard pc probing software and it gave me an alert/warning message that my pc power chassis 2 and power fans were at o rpm so i am assuming they are knackered can anyone confirm this please?

    Do i need a new power supply perhaps?

    When l started reading this l though it was a heat problem. l regularly give mine a hoover, inside and out as dust and hair collects, got a dog and cat. If anyone has a laptop you might have noticed the intake will get dusty if your laptop is in one place for a while. It could be down to overheating, but if its the fans then certainly. You can replace the fan easily enough on some systems, the power unit might have one built in. Power units are easy to replace, and cheap enough, lm sure you can do it yourself. There are programs out there that will tell you what your system temperture is.

    Most likely a bad power supply, but this could also have fried the mobo and/or cpu.

    A dodgy chassis fan would not cause startup/restarting problems.
