    Default PC keeps turning off

    My pC keeps turning off. when i turn it on it will shut down before it get gets to windows loading screen or just a few second when i turn it on. or it just doesn't turn on. The only way to turn it on is if i take out the graphic card and put it back in and then on it. I also noticed the gold bit on the edge(not the gold bit the goes in to the mothboard) has a red spot on it.

    I got window 7

    Could be a faulty graphics card, or faulty slot it plugs into.
    Check fan on graphics

    or bad caps, faulty PSU or faulty MB in general.

    Has the PC ever run OK?
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.
