Hi everyone. New member here, I'm sorry if this issue has been discussed before. I tried searching and couldn't find a match, but I might have missed something.

My XPS 630 will no longer boot. When I press the power button I hear a soft click from (I think) the PSU. This is the same click you usually hear when powering on the system. After that, nothing happens. No lights appear at the back of the system, but an amber led starts to glow on the motherboard. If I then hold the power button for a couple of seconds, I get another click. Then it just takes a short press on the button to get the click, so there's a part that determines if the system is on or off that's still working.

I replaced the gpu and ram of the system and added a third HD, but it'a been working with those parts for quite some time.

Google has led me to believe the problem might be caused by a defective PSU, but i'd like to get a confirmation before buying new parts.

Anyone who could offer me some advise?

Welcome.

And yes, your problem definitely sounds like the power supply.
