psu going?

Every once in a while about a week ago my computer would randomly "turn off", however it didnt really turn off.... it would sound like the psu shutting off, and the screen would get distorted with artifacts all over it. I had no idea what was going on, but i could still manage to see the mouse and shut off the computer. However, recently, the computer randomly restarts as well as the previous problems. I'm sure its a hardware problem because the same thing has happened with XP and Slax. My psu is a 400W Codegen that came with the case. No OC'ing either...

Check the fans in your PSU to make sure they are working properly. Fan failure is a common cause for random restarts because it overheats. Had one which the fans failed, and as a result I had to use a room fan for a few weeks while I waited for a replacement.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
