I tried getting help for this on another forum, but nobody could give me an answer.

I have a Gateway Essential running Windows 2000. About a month ago I started getting system errors (BSOD) when I watched videos. I formatted and reinstalled everything. Since then I have gotten less BSOD'S, but now the pc reboots randomly. I figured this might involve the power supply. Here's a picture of the power supply.



It also says 200 W on the side, guessing that means watts. If anyone could provide assistance it would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to ask and I will provide what info I can.

Your random shutdowns do point to a failing PSU.
Yes that is 200W.

could be a power supply problem. Something you can try first, open the case, make sure it is dust free and all fans are working, leave the cover off and try running the computer normally and see if it will reboot.
