My new computer has been working for a long time now about 2-3 maybe 4 weeks.

But today I was watching a movie in full screen and when i exited full screen mode, my computer randomly shut down. I hit the power button again, it started to turn on (CPU FAN started working, vid card fan started spinning,) but then it shuts down again.

When i turn it on, it stays on for about 2 seconds then turns back off.
Im starting to think its the power supply or something? I have a Rhino Panther 450W power supply. I read some forums and read that my power supply needs to match with my motherboard...

I kept trying to turn it on but now it wont even power on for 1 second. Nothing.

here are my system specs:

Wizard Mid Tower Ultra ATX Case
ECS NFORCE 6M 520 LE DDR2 Motherboard
OCZ SE 4GB DDR2 RAM
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5000+
500 GB Sata Hard Drive
nVidia GeForce 8500GT DDR2 PCI EXPRESS X16



Any help would be greaty appreciated.

Power supply would be my first guess. You really need a decent
psu, just hope it didnt take out the mobo when it died....
