Default Pc Randomly Shuts off????

Hey guys, I just build my first PC and it has been running great for about 2 weeks. Yesterday I started to have a problem with it It will only run for 1-10 mins the just shut off with no warning. This happens while i could be just sitting on the desktop or if I try to open a game ect. I checked all my connections and cooling fans they seem fine doesnÂ’t look like any loose wires are grounding out or anything. Im thinking it might be an internal power supply problem? I keep the pc in my desk where it is housed its 3 inches off the ground I pulled it out too quick yesterday and it dropped to the ground remaining standing up. The pc was off at this time, the power supply is mounted in the bottom of the pc case. Well if anyone might have a suggestion or a fix it would be great
Thanks for your time
