computer switches itself off

  Ozy 22:17 08 Jun 2006

Built my son an Athlon 2000PC with an sis Phantom graphics,
On an Asus board.After a few weeks use,and lots of downloads, and games installed.
Now when he plays a game,or goes on the internet, after about 10 minutes the computer switches off, no amount of pressing the front button will restart it.
The power has to be switched of at the wall,then aftr a pause switched on at the wall
And the computer restarts,(without pressing the front button ).
Sisoft Sandra says the CPU temp’ is steady at 47 degrees.
Changed the graphics to a Radeon 7000,still does it

Thermal overload in PSU dropping out is my guess.

PSU specs?
