Ok I just wanna check with some people who have a little more experience with hardware. I have a homebuilt pc that after a power outage won't turn on and the CPU makes a soft clicking sound. It was on a surge protector so idk if I should just replace my psi or what. I'm low on money and don't have access to another power supply to test this so your help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
