    Hi Folks I hope you can help.
    I have just upgraded my graphics card, now when I try to convert mp4 to avi my system just shuts down. I think the problem is my PSU is not powerful enough (this is where you guys can help) When I check my event viewer I get the error,
    source Kernel-Power
    ID 41
    lost power unexpectedly.

    So what do you guys think? If it is my PSU can you recommend a new PSU what would be compatible with my system.

    Thanks
