    I was cleaning the inside of my computer, cleaning the fans, 3rd time and after I tried to turn it on but it didnt work. I might have bumped some wires so it doesnt work. My computer makes a ticking noise while a green light blinks each time it ticks. I am also a novice at dealing with computers. I have a hp pavilion a824n.
    I have a picture and willing to take more:

    Looking at the pics it sounds fine to me.
    What happened to the hard drive, standing upright and backside closed to the cabinet, was it that way? I guess not. Keep it in the bay.
    I see the power cables might disturb the processor fans, take care of that.
