I need your advice to fix up the power supply system of my desktop PC. I was enjoying a game and suddenly everything hangs up and it shuts down. After then it is happening everyday and without showing any kind of message or warning power supply stops. If I try to restart the PC immediately after shutting down, power shows up for couple of seconds and it stops again. I need to wait at least 15-20 minutes to resume the normal service. I am not getting any kind of weird sound or beep from the power supply. What do you think? Please give me a reply.

Let’s start with your power cables you have to check them it they are causing some problems then replace them or repair them. After this now check you power supply FAN is it working properly, because this problem often comes when fan is not working properly it makes the system hot and thus cause for a shutdown so see it on your first importance. Also check that your power supply is rust free and it has no dust in it.
After that also check your Motherboard, is it free of errors and is perfectly working. If you are not a hardware expert then you can go to your near shop for PC's and ask him to do that.
