So my PC shut off randomly, weird, then when i went to login to my XP user account, it shut off and reboot. It did this all day...couldn't get on. I finally get on and it randomly reboots over and over......sometimes i get on sometiems i don't...or it just freezes. I'm thinking my generic PSU is going, but i have no multimeter to test with.....what can I do to help troubleshoot this?

Well, you could download ASUS PC-Probe, which will give you voltage readings, but your computing is giveing all the signs of a text book PSU overload. I would advise you to buy another PSU. A 450w Sunbeam Nuuo PSU can be had for under $70. I have used 3 Nuuo supplys and I love them.

12v = 11.8<br />
5v = 5.2<br />
