Computer Shuts Down

Some of you may be familiar with my recent problem of my computer not turning on. Well, now it switches off when I don't want it too! Then I have to leave it for a bit, and then it will start up again. And I don't think this is due to overheating, coz my computer doesn't get very hot before it switches off. Faulty PSU perhaps, as some of you mentioned earlier?

I got this ATX PSU like maybe 2-3 years ago, and its got 400W. It seems that whenever I watch movies online, or I defrag my hard drive (which I tried earlier today)..it just shuts off.

I want to go with possible CPU, your PC is booting up it always could be a ram problem. Go to your local PC shop get at least a 450 watter and plug it in should be good. If that don't work changes are its your ram.
