Should I get a new PS?

You probably have a bent CPU socket pin.

Life is too short to be fooling around with a problem like this. I still say you should just buy a new computer. The little HP Elite Mini I bought back in April is now my most used computer. Best $200 I've spent.!/msg4803890/#msg4803890
