So I was working & heard a rather noticeable "click" and the Mac shuts down. I press the power button and I hear the fans run but no startup chime, only a continuous red light near the large rectangular heat sink as well as one behind the front panel mesh (just under the first hard drive), no red lights near the 4 RAM slots.


Assume maybe a CPU or logic board...???

    It certainly sounds like a Hardware problem.


    Not much we can help you with there -- it needs professional attention.
