Hello everyone, I hope you all ok.
Anyways one of my PCs suddently stop functioning, it will not turn on at all.. every time I disconnect the PC from the power and plug it back it will make a noise kind like a small whistle( like the sound that a camera with flash makes when you take the picture and starts charging up) a green light int he back of the PSU will turn on and when I press the power button it will turn off.

Can this be a PSU problem related? will I need to change the PSU?

I hope I have made sense, please forgive me If I have confuse you.

Thank you

Have a wonderfull day

Do any of the fans start up or even try to spin, do any lights on the motherboard light up even with the psu off?

I've seen symptoms like that range from bad mobo, to memory to processor to video card. Top of the list is the PSU though.

Check and make sure the CPU Heatsink/fan are secured on the processor. Something on your motherboard is actively keeping your machine from turning on becasue something is wrong. It's keeping it from turning it on so you dont kill it.

Id say your power supply is broken. It might be time to find a new one.

no, no lights, except for a small green light in the exterior right by the PSU fan, that will turn on and after pressing the power button will turn off.

Well use this http://www.jscustompcs.com/power_supply/ to work out what the minimum requirement for your new power supply will have to be. I usually go 100w over the recommended just to be on the safe side.

unless you go to frys, in which case they will pursuade you to buy a new computer and somehow finagle their way into selling you a five year extended warranty...
