Re: PLEASE HELP!computer shutting off
its the convertor from 20 pin to 24 pin throw it in the bin if your that stressed with walk away leave it alone for 24 hours come back to it and you will have a fresh mind to sort it all out, at the end of the day we wouldn't learn anything if it all went right all of the time ive been there you just feel like throwing it through the window lol. Anyway back to the job in hand you need to buy a suitable ATX psu you can get a second hand one from ebay cheap enough those convertors cause allsorts of problem for the mobo not worth even trying if you have a expensive mobo and cpu. hope this all helps sorry to sound like a preacher.
