FSU Problem

Hey guys..

My FSU just died. I bought a new one and put it in and it works great. 5min later it just shuts off. I stop unplug it and plug it back in and it works again. For another 5min and then off again. Anyone know what could be the problem?

Thanks.

Is it the shot pin FSU or long pin?, the long pin had been discontinued and is faulty. Some suppliers still cary it. Where did you buy it?

It's the Short pin. Also, I think I found the problem. I didn't put it back where it belonged and I think it was overheating, it's good now.
