    Hi,

    when i turn on my pc at the mains, you can hear an audible 'click'. On looking at the base unit the green power led is on, the mouse lights up and all of the lights flash on my keyboard....that's it! Nothing else happens and the only way to get pc to do anything, ie, turn off, is to unplug it at the mains. Dont know very much about tech stuff, can someone help

    thanks

    I'll skip the 420 joke, you all know the one in mean. Sounds like a classic dying PSU to me. It of course could be a mother board/CPU/RAM/etc but that's where I would start with this one.
