Sounds like a power supply problem. Do you have a multimeter to test it?

Nope no multimeter, rather stupidly I saw your post this morning on my phone, automatically walked over to the computer turned it on so I could reply, then realised my computer is going, I had pulled all the cables out and given it a dust out yesterday.




But it seems to be going fine today
