    Hello.
    My Wii has just stopped working suddenly. Previously when I used it I was ripping Super Mario Bros. Wii to use on Dolphin, but now the console does something weird when it boots. The light goes green, i then hear two clunking noises (as if the drive had failed) and then the console turns off again.

    PLEASE HELP ME!

    -Sam

    I have Priiloader but I can't access it when the system boots. Nothing happens when I hold the RESET button.

    This Sounds very rare, as priiloader must be executed while holding reset at boot.

    Try maybe to perform a power cycle. if you leave your wii on standby or turned on, this might be also caused by overheating or poor ventilation.

    Can you turn it on using the wiimote? to discard the Bluetooth/Wifi card.

    Power cycling is the act of turning a piece of equipment, usually a computer, off and then on again. Reasons for power cycling include having an electronic device reinitialize its set of configuration parameters or recover from an unresponsive state of its mission critical functionality, such as in a crash or hang situation. Power cycling can also be used to reset network activity inside a modem. It can also be among the first steps for troubleshooting an issue.

    Meaning, unplug everything from everywhere, let it rest 5 minutes, and plug it back again.

    Ok, tried that, nothing happened. My Wii seems to have got worse, with the console now staying completely off and nothing happening with it at all.

    That sounds like a motherboard/hardware fail, not a software, can you turn it on with the controller? even if its just for a second?

    Nope, don't really want to get it sent off as it's not my Wii, it's my mum's.

    does it displays a green light for a second if manually turned on? or just a change of led? this might also be a Bluetooth module failure.

    Yup, sounds like a Blutooth module.
