Hi, that PSU is very old and not a high quality one. I'd suggest getting a decent Corsair, Seasonic etc. Something like a Seasonic S12ii 520. It is very likely that the PSU is causing the problems.

Agree with the above. The PC isn't crashing(bsods, etc.), but shutting itself off without warning, that's very likely the psu.
The psu is the most important component in a PC. Getting one on the cheap can lead to permanently damaging your other hardware should things go south.

Just because the rest of your PC is old too,it doesn't mean it can go with an old PSU. The PSU will degrade over time, meaning that even though it might once have been able to power your system, it won't be able to anymore. The reason why it shuts down is because the PSU cannot power your PC.

No, there is not a chance that a 'PSU cannot run Windows 10'. The system requirements for Windows 10 are exactly the same a for Windows 7, so if it runs 7 it runs 10. I suggest that you should try a new PSU, such as a Seasonic S12II 520w.

That guy doesn't know what he's talking about.
Software issues cause BSODs, etc, and then shut down.
Instant shut offs are hardware related, and in your case, the psu is the most likely culprit, as it wasn't a very good unit to begin with.

To correct that tech guy, a PSU cannot be incompatible with a certain type of Windows... All it does is give power. I your case, I believe your PSU doesn't give enough power for your CPU, GPU, RAM, HDD and other parts to work properly, hence causing these issues. I believe that most people here would agree with my previous recommendation of the Seasonic S12II 520w as a more than capable, yet cheap PSU.
