I have an Insperion 530s desktop computer that quit working. It will not power up. There is a green light lit up on the back of the machine, but nothing happening when I try to boot it up in the front. I've unplugged it and tried to plug it in other wall socket with no avail. Prior to this the computer has been making a horrible "roaring" sound when powered up and coming out of sleep mode. I'm pretty sure it's the power supply, but I'm second guessing myself.

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

The power supply will die completely and produce no power when it fails, so generally no green lights anywhere.

 

Roaring could be the cpu or case fan dying, when they go silent not long afterwards your computer dies.

 

Could maybe possibly still be the power though... Do you have another around you could test?

 

Sorry.

Just came across this same problem today also. Even the green network light on the back.

 

I removed all of the components and in the process discovered one of the power cables to the mobo was loose. Put all the cables back and then it's working...
