Well this can often explain it.
Do you know what make and model specifically?
Cheap/bad quality power supplies can go far worse than just random shut downs.


Have you checked temperatures?
Hello so the psu was really bad it was like 40 euros and its called armaggeddon and the temps were 68C-77C

Well thats already a huge red flag - and even if it wasn't the PSU causing the shut downs, I'd sure replace it anyway.

Also your temps are quite high for that CPU (assuming you are referring to CPU temp) which could equally be causing shutdowns.

Temp issues and bad PSUs are both very common causes of random shut downs.

Exactly. It doesn't matter whether you were gaming or not, the CPU handles up to a certain temperature whether its haevily loaded or not. What I'm saying is the temps could well be causing the issue.

if i change the psu will my pc boot up
Only way to know is to swap it and see. All I would say Is I would swap the PSU even if it WASN'T the root cause.

So what you are saying that the CPU might be dead also i saw that this psu causes random shut downs if it goes more that 310w and only my gpu needs 300w but the thing is that my headphones leds light up so that means the psu is not dead so i don't know what to do i asked another guy and showed him my psu and he said that it's probably the psu
