    I have a computer with a P5A MOB that will just shut down all of the
    sudden. The computer has been running fine for 3 years without any
    problems. Changed the power supply, because the first time it did it,
    I could not even get it to restart by pressing the power button. Then
    with new power supply it booted fine and ran for 30 minutes or so and
    did it again. That's when i realized if i unplug it for a moment then
    press power button it would start. But now it will make it to windows
    sometimes and then shut down, and sometimes it won't even make it to
    windows before it does it. Any siggestions would be greatly
    appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Look for leaking/bulging capacitors.
