Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

My first thought is that the CPU is overheating and immediately shutting things down.

Has the thermal paste ever been reapplied?

As for the PSU: it is good that the PSU works in another computer. However, the test may be questionable if that old computer has overall lower power demands.

More information needed.
