Hi Folks can anyone please help. Over the last few days my computer just shuts down and I get the message no power ,it can sometimes go for ages and then shut and other times like this morning it failed almost straight away. I shut off and restart with no problem and it wil run for a while and then the same thing happens and I do not know where to start. Any help will be gratefully appreciated

The first thihg to check is for heat.

If the cpu gets hot it will turn off the computer hence the message from the monitor.

Check all fans are working and clean.

If it's not cpu heat it could be video card shutting down, but if the computer shuts down fully, I would say it's the CPU overheating.

With works ok for ages and sometimes fails immediately
I would try another PSU first.
