So i've been having this issue for a while now with my pc and i've just got around to sorting it out.
One night while i was playing cs my pc randomly powered off and failed to reboot continuously. Any time that i press the power button on my pc it gives an instant surge of power through the whole system for literally 2 seconds but never actually boots, it lights up my mouse keyboard, snowball mic and motherboard has its green indicator light, but the system itself stays powered off. I've tried switching off the power supply on the back and letting it rest for a while before trying again and the same issue is still occurring. From researching the issue on forums i've come to the conclusion that its the power supply itself that needs to be replaced, but id like someone with more experience with computers to give their input.
Might be important to note that i built the computer roughly 4 years ago and i leave my pc running the majority of the time untill it powers itself off eventually from being idle'd too long. Ye i understand that its not a good idea but ive just created the bad habit of doing it unintentionally. Would appreciate if someone is able to confirm that it is indeed the battery that needs to be replaced before i start ordering new parts.

Also if anyone could recommend me a replacement psu that would be great or let me know if you think I should repurchase the evga supernova nex650g.

Specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5 4670-k.
Motherboard: MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming.
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8gb(2x4gb) 1600mhz.
GPU: Gigabyte Gtx 970 G1 Gaming.
PSU: Evga Supernova Nex650G.
HDD: 1tb Wd Blue.
Case: Nzxt Phantom 410.
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i.
Monitor: Asus Vn247h
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

Until you get your replacement, I recommend cycling your power. I've had a similiar issue solved through this method.

1) Turn off your PC
2) Switch the On/Off switch on the PSU itself to off.
3) Hold your power button for 30ish seconds
4) turn it on normally.

Try that. It cycles any extra power in the cables out, I believe, which could be causing the crash.

Edit: A 650W Evga Gold should be plenty for your PC. No need for anymore, plus it's a quality brand. At the very least, I use Evga for all my PSUs the last 5 years. Not one issue.

Edit 2: If the above doesn't work, can you try with a friends PSU? Anything over 550W should be good enough to just confirm, without needing extra power from the GPU load.

Appreciate the reply,
I've tried that method of cycling the power out of the power supply and it hasn't fixed the issue.
Great ill order the same psu again dude, it seems to have held up fine for the past 4 years under intense conditions till now.
I was hoping to try out one of my mates power supplies on my rig to see if it was indeed the psu, but they either stream for a living/game the majority of the day and dont have the time to lend me their psu since i live in the country side and i wouldn't have it back for at least a day.
Guess ill just purchase the same psu and hope its the problem.
Thanks again for taking the time to write the detailed reply. +rep'd

Motto: Basic.
Don't really know what's going on there, if you have the money for it or a spare PSU lying around switch them around and see if that's the issue.

I have a 1000w PSU and I am having no issue's.

Maybe try and re wire everything?

Sorry that didn't work out for you. Are there any shops around that could test it for you? The Fry's near my place will let me test out PSUs from them, since they have a building station for beginners.

Tried reconnecting all the pus cables a while back as i had a suspicion something might have came loose from cleaning my rig, but that doesn't seem to be the problem. I'm going to just pull the trigger and order a new psu tonight, worst comes to worse ill have a replacement incase i ever need it.

Not really many options around me dude, just a few overpriced electronic stores that sell shit rigs and barely any actual pc components. Then there's the odd small repair shop that only does things like replacing laptop screens and what not. I'm just going to go ahead and buy the same psu off amazon. Hoping that will fix it but if not ill have a replacement power supply in case i ever need one. Ill update the thread once i get the replacement.
