Computer keeps turning off

For some inexplicable reason my PC (Evesham AMD4000, 2gb ram) keeps turning itself off as it is loading. It gets nearly fully loaded and then suddenly turns off. Any ideas?

System could be over heating or you have a bad power supply unit

Power down the computer remove the power cable from the power unit and remove the side cover

Check the state of the CPU, case and power supply fan give then a good clean with a small paint brush just be careful when cleaning

Once you have clean out the fans and inside the case plug back in the power cable and turn on the
computer

Check all the fans are running and system will come up

If still failing replace the power supply unit
