Hello,

I have a old pc
and recently changes the power supply.
when I starts playing games(old games compatible with my pc) then After 10 minutes It gets restarted.I didn't face any lag in game.Game runs smoothly.I think the PSU is causing problem.rams are fine.No virus at all.

Sometimes while surfing the web it gets restarted.
My pc specs are Below

Intel celeron 2.13 Ghz CPU
windows xp sp3
2 GB DDR ram
Intel(R)82845G graphics controller 64MB

Please Provide me a solution if PSU is faulty then which PSU would u recommend?

Hi 81Vaibhav,

As you have mentioned you changed the power supply recently and the problem started since then, there is a possibility the power supply might be causing the problem.

However, the problem happens only when playing games and loading webpages, it is recommended that you update the video drivers available for download from Intel's website:

Also, if you want a good power supply for the machine, you can use the below mentioned link to find a matching power supply for your machine:
