i just installed a new psu and gpu into my comp yesterday(and played all day intensive games etc without 1 issue), while i was going to sleep watching hulu i noticed the screen freeze but thought nothing of it woke up a few hrs later and all my power was out and the fuse wouldent come back on.. decided to plug my pc into a diff outlet not involved with that circut then that circut fused and the other would go on, then i tried a trick, when i plug my power cord into my comuter the fuse blows instantly...

what the hell can i do here?

If the PSU is faulty and its under warranty I would send it in for repairs.. I also could be the circuit your using is overloaded and the 500 watt PSU pushes it over the edge.

If there was a failure of the transformer this could cause a dead short which will trip a breaker.
