Brand related - Seneca
Model - 3000 series - Mini -X3 - Combined with Nexlink.
Windows XP Professional

Problem is power to my knowledge. I dont believe I am sporting the correct power source. It is a powerful machine "Have upgraded it to the max of my resources" However everytime I fire up a game it reboots itself 30 seconds in exactly. Every game I have tried the PC exceeds the recommended specifications but to no avail it reboots 30 seconds in. I have updated all current software to my knowledge

I am currently @ work and do not have access to the Pc itself. "Hence needing the specs so I can grab the correct power source out of the shop before heading home" If someone is bored I would extremely appreciate the research and help.

Please note that the original power source to this PC is missing so I would love an opinion on an equivilent power source. UNLESS of course...its not the power. Currently I have a 12v 3.0 amp output plugged into the PC.


Thank you very much in advance my fellow techs

Edit:::::I have tried looking for the specs online. The only one close I can find is the Mini - X4 which is not the correct model. Just wanted to throw that in so I wouldnt get classified as LAZY

We need to know the components involved to assess the power needed.
Speccy will give you that info: Speccy - System Information - Free Download
How old is the PC? OEM units commonly come with low quality PSU's with minimal power.
Remove the case side and look at the label on the PSU for a brand &Model Number.

Sounds like it uses a power brick like a laptop?
