PC shuts down all of a sudden. Help..!!

Tried applying thermal paste assuming that its a heating issue. But issue persists. How to know if its an issue with SMPS? Suggest other possible causes pls. Occur once in 4-5 days of use.

Check the Shutdown log. Monitor CPU and HD temperature. Perform a RAM health check.

It doesn't sound like an SMPS issue. But if you are comfortable with handling hardware, disconnect all non-essential hardware .... like remove the sound card, DVD drive, if you have a graphics card,remove it and boot from onboard graphics, if you have multiple RAM modules, keep only one .... if you have multiple hard drives, keep only the primary drive from which the OS boots .... the idea is reduce the power required, as much as possible ... to be honest, it doesn't sound like an SMPS issue to me, but by reducing the required power, you can check if it is ......
...
Also, by removing the hardware to bare minimum required to boot, you can narrow down if it's some particular hardware which is causing the problem

It's a basic PC. It doesn't have sound card, DVD Drive, Graphics Card. Only 1 RAM, 1 HDD. I interchanged the power cables of monitor & CPU. I feel like I hear a shorting sound just before it turns off. A very rare chance of having power cable's issue. Thx.

2 years seems to be too less for SMPS life, it should come for more. But it is usually SMPS issue or Motherboard issue. In either SMPS or Motherboard, one of the capacitors would have gone. Request someone to lend their SMPS of same type to remove and check. If it is SMPS issue, it won't cost much. If it is motherboard capacitor issue, if you have reliable repair vendor, it won't cost much. Unknown vendor may say, change the motherboard :-)

I accidentally pressed one of the capacitor a little bit when i re installed fan after applying thermal paste. The reason for applying the thermal paste was this 'random off' issue. So, i don't think its an issue with motherboard. Are the values in my screenshot normal?
Also, the issue occurs once in 4-5 days of approx 8 hrs use a day.
