I have an older PC that was having random restarts and lockups. The machine was running slow so I bought a SSD to replace my old hard drive and try to speed things up and resolve the problem but the problem persisted. I thought maybe it was the video card so I swapped it out then the computer didn’t turn on at all. So I thought, Ah Hah… It’s the PSU causing the problem. I purchased a new EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 220-G2-0750-XR 80+ GOLD 750W to replace my old CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE. The PC boots up and then shuts off after a couple minutes. Its either the power supply or something else (excessive heating) causing the problem. I tried to install my CPU monitoring software but it doesn’t stay on long enough to get it installed. I don’t want to mess with it any more for fear of ruining my new power supply. Any suggestions?
