Hi guys/gals,

This is my problem.

I have a DELL Optiplex GX270.
Since yesterday, after using the machine for a couple of hrs, the machine will shutdown abruptly.
My keayboard and mouse will fail to function and I would have to shutdown the main power from the power socket to reboot the machine.

During this time, my power(CPU) light is still on, on my machine, it is in a hanged state.

Once I plug out the power, my machine will be able to boot up for a while before it returns to a hanged stage.

any advice?
Could it be the PSU giving me problems?
or a virus?
