Could be anything from a virus to faulty components to heat issues.

Need more info on your system mate. When did the problem start? Can you get hold of another PSU to test it? Start eliminating different aspects.

So everythings working?

You should have tried taking the PSU outside and blowing all the dust out of it, dead skin can cause some serious problems lol.
