    MY computer was working totally fine last night.. I went and off'ed it at about 230am..

    now today i want to use it, and i hit the power button and it just makes a click noise repeatedly.. Im decent with computers so i opened it up and did all it hink i could do. and tried to start it up again

    Unplugged everything, got rid of the dust.. COntinues to make that noise and wont startup..

    Its a custom computer in a dell case Lol so the power button is orange hue right now, instead of theg reen color it should be.

    Anyone know whats wrong with it, im 90% positive it has to do with the power supply/button since something Similiar has happened before, but the fix for that was just lifting it up and powering it.
    thanks if anyone can help

    Is it in a Dell XPS/Precision case? Their power lights turn orange when the power supply overloads. Try unplugging it for a few minutes and then plug it in and turn it on.
