the tick sounds appear as soon as the pc is plugged in and not powered on.

when i plugin the power, i can hear the PSU whirling and starting up with some tick noise (not a clicking fan noise but electrical sounding ticks). when I try power on, the led lights come on and computer shuts down after 1 second. when i press it again, the same thing.
