Hi people,

My problem is,

A couple of weeks ago everything was fine, when suddenly my computer just stopped working,
Specificaly, at start when i tried booting, the power supply made a little flash and the power on the house went down. also, the on-off button on the power supply refused to go to off, it just pushes itself back.
After opening the case and doing a little clean up , i managed to start the computer. The thing is, there was no beep, and the booting failed again and again, the screen remained black. Also there is a strange ''tick-tock'' constant sound coming from the machine, i think it comes from the power-reboot button area.

Any Ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your quick reply,well, I want to be sure, how could that happen? Truth is the mb is a bit old, about 3-4 years old, but i see no way it could suddently break down?

I would start by trying another PSU from a working computer since you mention several things relating to the power supply in your post.

...and you also stated that the power supply on/off switch no longer works. Your PS failed, from the symptoms clear up on the primary side. Replace it. Since the failure was so far up front, there's a very decent chance the rest of your system survived.
