Pc has been working fine for months all of a sudden it is rebooting itself some times before reaching post other times after 5-10 minutes or so.Leaning towards psu on its way out but would anything else cause this? before i lay out cash for a new one .Have checked all fans working and clean and temps are all ok .

Thank you for your response, Should have said machine running Linux which has been throwing up errors this afternoon.Checked all connections they all ok. To throw in mix just tried reinstalling XP on it as i have retail version deleted linux partition and pc went off that's as far as i got now looping on and off before post

New drive in install got as far as format drive,1% into format went into reboot then continuous reboot before post.looks like new psu is the way forward could have done without expense this side of Christmas but hey ho that's life.

Thank you all for your suggestions
