It seems you may have a faulty internal power supply, are you running any Mods like internal lights and fans? if your PC is a manufactured one it may not have sufficent AMPs eg 250 or 300 you may have to get a new one with 400 or more.
I seem to remember there was a how to replace it a few mags ago, just looked in issues 99 and 100 and didnt see it.
