Gigatybe MB. Ran for 3 months without problems. Lately it reboots or total shuts off. Sometimes it restarts if I cycle the power sometime it simply ignores me. Come back a few hours, it starts without a problem. A few hours later or a few days later, it shuts off again. Replaced power supply, same thing. Any ideas?

First make sure your fan is operating on your processor it takes about 3 mins for it to over heat and stop and shut itself down for safety to prevent burning up the processor.if its not this read on. Also when you boot into safe mode then do a system restore to a date before the problem started. But first in safe mode run your antivirus scan to find something that is missed while being hid behind the operating system while functioning.

How many years do you own that desktop computer? You have a problem with your Ram: Transcend: 2GB 1333 Mhz
Ram is always responsible to boot and run all system required by your computer A defect ram cannot boot or not properly run application e.g. Power-On-Self-Test (start up of your computer) Booting your Operating System Running your Application like Microsoft office , Photoshop and so on
You seem to have a corrupt display card. Is it on board or do you have a separate graphics card installed in your PC. Either way on restart graphics processor is not turning on. What does the Power and HDD indicator on the PC show during boot up. You could also have damaged the Hard Disk because of your abrupt shutdowns. You can open the side cover and try disconnecting the HDD power (Yellow, Black & Red ) cable and IDE ( 40 pin flat ribbon wire ) cable and try restarting. If your monitor starts up and shows BIOS page you have a faulty HDD. Also see if the processor fan is a working when you start the PC. If not you have a failed mother board. Are you getting the boot up RAM beep. If not before you do any of the above mentioned things Just pull out the RAM ( with PC unplugged ) and reinsert into the slot. It might get your PC working after all
Decide what kind of reboot you are going to do. A soft reboot is performed the way you are “supposed” to do it. For a soft Windows reboot, go to the Start menu and select “Shut Down” or “Restart.” The computer will then shut itself down. Clicking “Restart” makes it boot up without further intervention from you.
Perform a hard reboot by pushing the computer’s power button and holding it until the computer shuts down. Wait 45 seconds and restart the computer by pushing the power button again. You may have to start up in safe mode, but that also allows you the chance to restart properly or work on programs in a safer way. This method may cause you to lose data or mess up the operation of some of your programs. But it may be the only option if your computer's hard drive is frozen.
Power down all of the computer's components. Shut off all of the peripherals you have attached to your computer, and disconnect the cables. Then, plug all of the peripherals back in, and restart your computer. This can often solve problems with your hard drive.
Purchase and install a program such as Drive Reboot Restore PC 6.0 that streamlines the hard drive reboot process. These applications help prevent the problems that can develop after repeated computer use. They also ensure that your hard drive maintains the configuration you want each time you turn it on.
Investigate what the problem may be with your hard drive. Because of its delicate nature, your hard drive can very easily be thrown off.
sounds like the hard disk drive is slow to spin up. Sometimes older drives don't get all the way up to speed at boot, then with repeated restarts, the drive warms a bit and the spindle friction drops allowing full speed on the drive.
Try running HDD Diags the 1st boot of the day Fn +power button, see if you get any diag failure. Generally, a drive has to be within 3% of rated drive RPM (5400 or 7200) to function
