The issue Computer turns off while running as if it were reset. Also at times during startup it turns on for about 2 seconds and restarts and goes on doing the same. Doesnt even reach the BIOS and the POST screen. I replaced the RAMS and also tried single chanel, didnt solve the problem. Also reset the CMOS but to no avail.

I would recommend that you try this basic PSU functionality test. If the PSU powers on and stays on, then there is a possibility that your system is triggering the OCP/OVP (overcurrent and overvoltage protection) circuits on the PSU due to an out of spec signal from the motherboard. There could also be a short or a grounding issue within the system preventing the PSU from powering on and staying on. If this is the case then I would recommend testing the PSU in a different system to be sure. If the PSU is still not powering on properly then let us know and we will be happy to replace it!
