    12 hours ago my Alienware x51 was working and now it's not.

    It wasn't going out of standby mode so I turned it off manually by the power button, when I turned it back on, the fans started blowing at max speed and it still wouldn't appear on my monitor.
    It's not a monitor issue since I tried another system on it.

    It's not HDMI, I'd like to believe it's not a power supply problem. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated

    I've already turned it off and unplugged everything, waited an hour, turned it back on and still same problem.

    I have a video of it blowing but i don't know how to upload it here if needed cause new to the site.

    I had my Dell PowerEdgeSC430 (10 years old) do that over the holidays and had an orange light on the power button. The fans sounded like a jet engine. Checked the board and found several bulged capacitors. With mine I found the orange light meant board failure so I got a used one off eBay and replaced it over the holidays. Is your X51 under warranty? What is the service tag? The manual might have some trouble shooting tips. They made several revisions of the X51.
