Power supply makes arcing ticking sounds when plugged in.

HP Recommended
Pavilion TG01-0023w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I purchased a pavilion gaming pc for a pretty good price, the pc looked mint however when I plugged it into power I noticed that the PSU was making a ticking sound. I unplugged and inspect the cable and port and didn’t notice anything wrong with either. 

the computer will power up and boot but after a period of time will restart randomly with no error codes or blue screens. It’s obvious the PSU is the problem but I want to know what exactly(components)in the PSU causes the ticking arcing sound.

@Berejm , welcome to the Community.

 

It is difficult to know what is causing the ticking sound within the PSU.  You should definitely contact the seller for a replacement.  It will only get worse and could cause major component failures if it shorts out.
