Could be the PSU...but you haven't told us enough to

even make an educated guess.

How big (in watts) is the PSU ? What make and model is it ?

What else is in the system.

Again...what else is in the system ? and exactly what PSU is

In reply to: a generic psu

it ? Generic is meaningless to me ... some 450W PSUs are good and others are barely qualify above junk. There's a big difference in PSUs for systems with 3-4 HDDs, 2 DVD burners, and a GPU that want at least 350-450W and 30 AMPs.
