New PSU or new mother board...any suggestions

Suddenly my Mesh PC has died. I press the power ON button and it sterts to buzz and whirr as normal then just dies. The amount of buzzing and whirring varies from 2 seconds to about 8 seconds but it allways dies. I am thinking (total guess) a possible PSU fault though somebody has suggested mother board. Can anyone shed some light on this.

Any comments appreciated,

Could be overheating and the system shuts down... check that the heatsink on the processor is firmly seated. Have you moved the machine around recently?

I still think it's the PSU. If you have a spare try it

Try this Remove all power plugs from Drives and all PCI cards except graphics start comp and see if it will let you get into BIOS to set to Defaults
