Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Computer will boot up but after 5 minutes it shuts

Definitely your SMPS is faulty. Change it to one with a rating of 450-500 Watts and that should solve this problem....sodeep
This sounds like a overheating issue. Remove the left side panel and look for the fan on the CPU, with the PC turned off, take a small brush and a can of commpressed air and clean all the dust from the fan and the heatsink below it. Be careful doing this as to not break any components or knock any connections loose.
Good luck with this.
