Aurora R10, won’t turn on

I have an aurora r10, I tried to turn it on like every other day and it wouldn’t. The fans would spin up very loudly and a yellow light flashes on the power button. Nothing pops up on the monitors, the keyboard is unresponsive. I’ve tried holding the power down for 30 seconds and no luck. And this point I’m about to trash it I’m so frustrated with this computer.

First thing to try is replace the small cmos battery with a new one then clear cmos settings by mobo jumper https://www.dell.com/support/manuals/en-us/alienware-aurora-r10-desktop/alienware-aurora-ryzen-service-manual/clearing-cmos-settings?guid=guid-94341e81-58b7-48a3-9995-f7516b380aff&lang=en-us

Loud fan and yellow flashing led = corrupted cmos settings
