Hi Emjo,
Did I understood correctly?
1. You turn on the main switch and the indicator come on (shows that there is electricity present)
2. You push the power button than electricity indicator went off.
- On this position, screen is black but computer is working.
- Than a noise heard and its turned off?
Is that the situation?

Except the part of "the noise" thing, it seems like your PSU (power supply Unit) faulty.

But the noise is another issue; generally, computers have few noise sources; all moving parts, namely, cooling fans and hard drives.
I suggest check your fans first.
There should be one for CPU, one or more mounted on back and front panels (sometimes they mounted on side panels/doors -depending on the type of computer case) sometimes little fans on graphic card and main board. And the one big fan generally located inside the PSU, but I dont recommend to deal with it, instead of trying to fixing internal fan of PSU, it is better to change the PSU with new one.

Next source is hard drives. If the noise characteristics is more mechanical like metal to metal knocking, like a hitting a metal box with a little hammer, if so, this is bad news. But there should be another symptoms accompanied with this like freezing moments etc..

Warning: Safety first.
And be careful what you do, there is high power on PSU, and there maybe a leak, check first if there is high voltage on the case or not(with a voltmeter).
Before to attempt to open the case of your computer, its better to ground yourself first with touching with one hand on the bare metal of the case to avoid static shock on electronic parts.

Back to PSU, you can find a data plate/sticker side of your PSU. Check the specifications and order new PSU from your local dealer. I am sure you can find many source to buy on the internet as well.
PS: If you use many USB devices and few hard disk, you can consider to buy higher wattage PSU.

Good luck & Regards

Precision T7400 power supply sounding an alarm


Did you open the case on your computer? It may have an open case alarm which is a small switch typically located near the edge of the cover you removed. Make sure the case cover is completely installed, then see if the alarm goes off.

Computer wont turn on


Make sure the tower is getting power. There will be a green light on the back of the tower where the power cord goes. Make sure the cord is snug and that it is securely plugged in to your power source - I'm hoping it is a power surge strip and in which case, make sure the surge strip didn't get unplugged or turned off. If you have it plugged directly in to the wall then make sure that outlet has power by plugging something else in to it that you know works. After doing all of this, make check to see if there is a light on the back of your pc. If not, unplug the power from the back of the tower, wait 30 seconds at least, and then plug it back in. Hit the power button on the front just once, if it doesn't power up, press and hold the button in for a 2 seconds and release. If that doesn't work, your power supply may have gone bad. That happens from time to time. Good luck, hope this helps!

No power to my desktop computer HP A1330N and no green light in the back of the power supply


You replaced power supply and your made sure you plugged everything back into the motherboard snuggly and in it's proper place? If so it might be your motherboard is bad.

Make sure you have the new power supply turned on. Sometimes there's a O/I switch on the back of the power supply. Flip it and try to boot and see what happens. You might have another bad power supply.
If so your motherboard might be burning them out.

Try removing the power cord for 30 seconds and press and hold the power button. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in and press the power button to see what happens.

Do your fans work when you press the power button? Do you hear any fans running?

Power goes green then back to standby


It sounds like this one needs component-level troubleshooting, probably in the power supply section.
