I started having this problem a few weeks ago. I got a new sata hard drive and graphics card and found that I have to put in a power connector double adaptor to get my old hard drive to work. After I put linux on it and booted from it, about 20 mins in from using it I hear a click like when you turn off your computer, the screen freezes and the hard drive spins up again. It happened about 3 times now and its starting to get annoying. It also did the same thing when I was using windows on the other hard drive but because nothing was running off it the system didnt crash.

Any tips or advice?

It could be a sign of a bad drive. A bad power supply wouldn't cause it to just power off. Also you might want to check the connections to the drive or try a different power connector.

it sounds like something is loose or faulty in wiring system.

Problem fixed, I just unpluged the hard drive. Linux wasnt worth the trouble.
And is a 340w psu in need of an upgrade?

Depends heavily on the PSU itself (quality brand or not?) and your system. For some systems it will be more than enough, for some others it won't. Sounds like the HD was not getting enough power.
