Recently, my computer has been taking a while to power on. I'd turn it on, the lights come on, but the mobo didn't make the usual "beep" it makes when it turns on. After about 5 minutes, it would beep and come on. On sunday, when I turned it on, the fan on the PSU was making a really weird noise. Like, it was rubbing against something inside it. So I did some research and found out that it isn't too major and a light tap on it should do the trick. When I did that, my whole computer turned off.

Plugged it back in, and it seemed to be working fine. After a few minutes, the noise came back. I did some more research and found out some people had luck by tightening the screws securing the PSU to the case. So I turned off my computer, and tried tightening the screws. 2 of them were stripped, so I put in new ones. Everything was as tight as it would get. I plugged everything back in, and it wouldn't turn on. The lights on the case would turn on, but nothing on screen came up and my mobo didn't do the "beep". So I tried smacking the PSU, turned it on, and the mobo beeped, but nothing would show up on screen. Eventually, I unplugged the VGA cable from my video card, and plugging it right into the mobo. WTF. It worked. plugged it into my video card, nothing. The fan on my video card was spinning, but it wouldn't display anything. I figured it was just a dead power supply (it was a cheap one that came with the case) and couldn't fully power the video card or something. Is this something that buying a new PSU will fix? Or is the problem with the video card? I never had any problems with the video card before.
