    When I switch my P.C on it works for 2 minutes then it stops for 10 seconds then it starts again all by itself. It keeps doing this all day.
    Here is details about the computer;
    Case : Termaltake, Tower
    Motherboard : Gigabyte
    CPU; Intel
    CPU heat sink ; Noctua
    Op.System; Windows 7
    The computer was custom built in 2009. It was working fine til 2012.
    It has not been used since 2012.

    My guess would be the PSU. What are the exact specs?
    Just open it and take a picture so that we can find out what PSU it is.

    It's properly dusty inside from being stored away for 4 years. Dust in heat sinks takes away cooling performance. Give it a clean.
