Question about Ultra (ULT31586) ATX Mini-Tower Case
This is a power supply issue. Try borrowing a power supply to test first. Then buy a new one and replace.

Tips for a great answer:
Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems
motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail
check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat
Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.
Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.
This compound is an inexpensive solution and can be found at any local Radio shack or computer repair center
another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit
scroll to bottom toolbar bottom of screen right click select task manager
applications you will see whats running if you see anything you dont need running select end now
also under processes see what is ticking over again if you see something you don't need to be running end now or you might uninstall that program and some unnecessary programs
not having enough computer ram can cause memory dumps
If you are not sure if a module is right for your system use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.
first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system
hope this helps
