Ok that’s a problem and the likely cause of your issue. That so called 500w only claims 22A on the 12v rail which is the most important rail (22A x 12V = 264w). By its own spec it’s really a 300w psu and at <£20 it’s going to be terrible quality.

The first thing to do is get a good quality 500w or greater psu. The Corsair CX550 are ok and usually reasonably priced. Although be careful, don’t get the CX500.

Make and model of Power Supply Unit?

A failing power supply can cause the symptoms you describe, knowing exactly which power supply you have will tell us the quality and therefore likelihood it is failing.
On The power supply it says ATX switching powersupply model ATX-500b I don’t know what company it is tho
