Default Power up problem

I have just gotten a new power supply and when I turn my computer it seems fine it loads up windows and I go into my log in it loads my desktop and everything fine then after about a minute it restarts. I am guessing i plugged it in right though because it will work in safe mode but I am not sure any suggestions of might what be happening?

Never mind I believe I have solved the problem..

Uh on the back there is a little red swtich, try flipping that to 220, then back to the 100 setting, also make sure your cpu is not overheating same with your graphics card or your motherboard, check the tempatures in the bios if you can... You might have a bad PSU that randomly stops working too, you never know.

And the problem was a stupid one I am shamed of I didnt clear out the old drivers of my old video card because I had also gotten a new video card today. Once I did it booted fine and I installed new drivers and all runs good.
