PSU failure?

The other day I went to turn on my computer and the lights on the front of the case came on for a split second like it was going to boot up but then they went out and the comp didnt boot. I turned the psu off for a sec then tried to turn it back on and it made this constant noise like it was turning itself on and off. I havent even had it for a year. Its an Antec SP-450. This almost defintely sounds like a bad psu, but I was just wondering if anyone had seen something similar to this before I rma it. Too bad I dont have an extra psu to jump in.

  1. could be many things. but that noise...i dunno
  2. If the noise is comming from inside the PSU it probably went bad.
  3. I know it sounds silly, but is the power plug all the way in at the back?
