My PSU probably died, but I was wondering if anyone here have seen similar symptoms. First of all the PSU turns on as soon as I flip the switch on the back of the PSU, previously I had to press the power button on the front of the case to turn it on. I cannot turn the PSU off using this front power button either, even if I keep it pressed for a long time.
After powering up the computer gets power (all the fans start spinning) but id does not POST, just the red LED on the front of the case and green stanby LED on MoBo start pulsating and I can hear ticking (with changing frequency) and high pitched sound coming from the power supply, it also smells funny.
All points to the PSU failure but maybe someone has any other ideas?
