A friend of mine had the same problem, I checked the USB slots and someone tried to put a USB in the wrong way and broke the guard, bending the pins which grounded the system. Just straighten them out and it worked fine. Don't know if this is what happened to the laptop, but it's an idea
it's actually a desktop but I'll check that out..thanks
edit: little more info: The HD starts to spin up and as soon as it does that's when the system dies. Should I just go ahead and put it into a diff machine and see what it does?

was this loud click accompanied by any bad smells?
no bad smells.
I'll try to see how if it boots to bios without any devices powered and see what happens
ok so I tried that and I got one beep followed with a shut down.

I put a new power supply on it and got one beep and a LOUD click then everything shut back off. I am going to put the HDD into one of my computers and see what happens. Just wanted to check here first. Thanks again!!
Odds are, you just wiped out any warranty they may have had left by opening the case and replacing the power supply !!
