hi guys :wave: i have a emachines computer in an alienware case. it has 2 hard drives with xp on both. Since 2 weeks the computer would sometimes make 'tick tick' sound on starting up. I also started experiencing freezing in both of the os on both harddrives. It wasnt the freezing because ofoverload on ram, it would just freeze up at any point, even when saving a file or anything. First it gave few system errors at bootup & now its completely dead. Now it wont power up. When pressing the power button the led lights and fan turn on for few miliseconds and they stop. I thought there might be something wrong with the psu. I opened and cleaned it to see if that "tick tick" noise was coming if something was stuck in the fan, but nothing like that. Dont know if its the problem with the motherboad or with the psu. Now rather than taking it to a repair shop is it better to look for other computer or should i try replaicing psu; because in repair shop they will charge about $60 just for diagnosis and then for fixing the problem again. which is the best way to go in this prob. Update: I again looked at the comp and found that the pins of wires coming from psu to motherboard is damaged. I mean one of the pins of the wires is coming out.could that be the prob.? Should I try with new psu?
