Hello.
My old pc shuts off while watching videos.
When pressing power button, fans spin for a split second then stop.
I thought that's caused by psu, but without gpu computer runs normally.
Is there any way to check if gpu died or something.

The fact that the system boots without the GPU, is very often an indication of problems with the PSU, since the GPU often requires a good amount of power to power on.
With the GPU removed, power demand drops a lot, and could be the reason why the PC boots fine in that configuration

It is not neccessarily the problem, although it is a very likely cause, and should be looked at more closely, in my opinion

Could you list all your system specs, including the make and model of the PSU?
