    Unhappy Random turn off

    I am getting this problem now for a few days:
    My machine suddenly turns off in less than 1 sec. The green LED on my casing(front) stays lighted, but I see no fans turning inside, nothing. No sound. Just the green LED. And the power button does not work, nor the restart button.

    The only solution I currently got, is to pull the power plug out of the wall socket, and reconnect it. Sometimes this doesent work. When I replug it, the green LED only lights up, no fans, nothing. I have to repeat the process, and sometimes I succeed. And, all the time when booting, or after booting also, the same thing happens(turns off, only green LED, etc.)

    What I mean turns off is not shut down by windows. Turns off without any notice instantly, poof.

    I greatly appreciate help from somebody, and quick.

    For that price an Enermax Noisetaker 475 or one of the Fortron Source units in the same wattage range would probably work well.

    Try connecting the computer in other place, also go into you motherboards bios, go to the power tab and there will be something related about what to do when power fails (i don't recall the option) and set it so the computer remains turned on and it should fix the problem regarding not wanting to power up after a power failure. Note while this will not eliminate the fact that your computer turns off randomly, at least you will be able to turn it on right away.

    What I meant was to try another known good working one first before buying a new one even though it sounds like a flakey psu, it could be something else.
