Been having problems with my PC for a few weeks now :dontknow

It failing to startup at times, or starts up but a black screen, then it will start up but reboots or shuts down after a few seconds, other times I can sign in and it just freezes up, so I have to reboot :dontknow  :o

Almost sounds like a hardware problem. Maybe something overheating. When was the last time you cleaned inside for dust bunnies. ??

I took out has much hardware has I could, seems to have helped, so it maybe the PSU.

Any "beeps" or "flashing lights" you can check with the manufacture on these..

I have a Dell and seems to run good until I want to watch Coronation Street, then after 10 mintues of streaming, it shuts down by itself..

That maybe what it is. If it's running better now than that's what I would think.

I built it myself, so should I check with myself  :dontknow

And I never put the little speaker in when I built the PC

Sounds like (in order of likelihood)

1. An overheating issue - check cpu fan, eradicate dust bunnies

2. A PSU issue to me, got a spare to try it?

This is assuming, of course: 

I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

I have a feeling this may not have helped .... :emb
