    My computer won't boot as of today. My motherboard clicks continuously when I turn the power on - it also flashes 4 green lights and 2 red ones. This doesn't seem to stop or have any pauses. Anyone know what this error code means? I am currently searching for them online but haven't had any luck.

    The motherboard is doing the clicking (it's in sync with the lights) and yes, the lights are all on the motherboard. There are 6 of them. 4 are red, 2 are green.

    The fan seems to be working fine - i can't find anything on the light code but after hours of searching I finally found out that the "beep code" means a "power problem." I guess I will try another power supply?

    I can't get into the BIOS at the moment. The comp isn't booting at all. Tomorrow I am going to see if I can boot with a new power supply though. I will check into the dynamic energy saver thing. Thanks
