I have Vista premium with SP1. Last time I formatted it was in December (or late November). At the beginning it worked fine, so I doubt the OS would be the issue. It's been working fine since the last few months (like 3 months).


And to Sined, I have a big brother than can take care of the computer, but thanks anyway :p

Does the big brother happen to have a computer he can swap parts out of? If he does, he could try his power supply or any other parts in your computer. That is a quick way to test things, and make sure you're replacing the right part.

Yeah, he was the one who proposed that the power supply was faulty. I'll call him and ask!
