The psu on my custom tower went out recently (no power to mobo, or even fans) so I went out and purchased a Lepa g1000-ma: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817494010. I know quite a bit about computers but when it comes to PSUs I'm not that knowledgable. I was able to unhook my old psu and get in the new one but after connecting all the cables I'm receiving no power. I'll leave a few hardware specs and hopefully someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong or if they are even compatible.

Mobo: 890GXM-G65 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130269
Video card: HD 5850 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102857
2 HDs (2x500gb)
DVD/rw drive
Case: CoolerMaster HAF 922 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197

Forgive me if I left anything out, this is my first time NEEDING to post on a computer forum. I will gladly add any info needed and pics if it will help. Thanks in advance.

Lets cover the basics, did you remember to plug in ALL power cables (24-pin, CPU power, GPU power, ODD and HDD power, etc.)? Are all the cables plugged in securely, as far as they will go? Does the PSU have a switch you need to use to turn it on? Are all other internal cables securely plugged in? Is the "Stand by" light on the motherboard, if it has one, on? Did you knock something loose when you fixed the PC? Can you confirm that the motherboard is indeed still functional?

Went back over the wiring one last time and noticed one of the power connector pins had gotten pushed out and wasn't making contact. I fixed it and computer fired right up. Thanks for your help!
