Jacob, yes it does sound like a bad PSU. The clicking could be relays etc. just a guess until you can closer identify the location on the board. most likely not as simple as a battery issue. The cost for any items are based on quality and support. Yes you can get cheaper ones but do you get the same level of support etc.No such thing as a "crappy psu". After all, you are now feeling the results of a failed PSU.
