The most likely cause is a faulty power supply which can be fixed fairly easily and shouldn’t cost a great deal.    We only supply top quality power supplies, a cheap one can kill your entire PC and all components if it fails.  A power surge can also cause a power supply to fail and with that the possibility of damage to other components. We’ll do a full investigation of your system and let you know of any other issues.  A power surge could also bypass a cheaper power supply and affect the other components in your system which might also be causing the power problem. Power supply replacements start from just £99 depending on your PC’s power requirements. Give us a call to chat about your problem and we’ll let you know what we think is causing it.
