Just swapped the power cable out thinking it might be shorting. Assuming the power supply is toast? Thoughts? Computer is only 2 years old. Yes my desk is a mess.

It boots up and will run for about 10 mins before straight up shutting down and starting back up like that.

Disconnect everything not essential to POST from the power supply and motherboard. Drives, USB peripherals, video card if you have onboard video available, Ethernet, etc and see what happens. If it works, add shit back one at a time until it fails. If it doesn't then replace the power supply.

But i ugess it is true.. Floor layers are either alcholics or drug addicts.. neither make good decisions.

Unplug everything from the PSU. Jump the green wire to any blacks on the 24 pin power plug. Test any yellow wire for 12v with a multimeter.
