i7 860 3.0ghz
ATI 5770 1g
and a Xclio 500w power supply.
I shut the computer off this morning and brought it up to school with me, and since then if I plug it in I get the light on the back of the power supply to turn on for less than a second, the fans spin for that same amount of time, and then it all goes off. The power supply doesn't get the light again and I can hear a very quiet clicking sound coming from it. If I unplug it and leave it for a bit and plug it back in this all repeats, but the light will not come on if it is still clicking (nor does it stay on for more than a half second).
Is this simply a dead power supply? Or should I worry that I damaged something else. The computer was handeled with great care the whole move, and nothing on it was damaged.
If this is the power supply, what would you guys recommend that I can replace it with? The only requirement is that it needs to be on the cheaper side since I do not have much money right now.
