PC only powers up intermittently

PC will only power up intermittently. - Sometimes there appears to be no power at all, presing the power button has no effect. Other times it will start-up by itself.

It also turns itself of sometimes when in use. Sometimes it will restart other times it won't.

I have checked the power lead and it's fine. - Is this a power supply problem or could it be something else ?

Certainly sounds as if your power supply unit is almost dead.

I would try a new PSU as a first attempt at repairing your machine.

The PSU installed is 250w - Do you recommedn i get something higher ?
