Is the PSU connected to a working motherboard with properly installed CPU (with heatsink and fan) as well as RAM?

A couple of weeks ago, I had something similar happen...I had failed to properly connect both PSU connectors (4-pin, 24-pin) to the motherboard.  Once I properly inserted the 4-pin, all was well.

You might have to exchange this power supply for another new one.  Did you purchase it locally, or by mail?  If by mail, make sure you follow return instructions to the letter  :)

What is the make and model of this computer?

 

If the old PSU was working, why did you replace it?

 

Let's isolate the PSU and see if it will run.

 

Turn the computer off and unplug the cord to the PSU.  When you press the power button is short the two header pins connected to the switch wires.  This in turn short the green wire and a black wire in the 24 pin connector initiating the start of the PSU.  Using the method below will bypass the motherboard. 

 

What you are going to do next involves touching components inside the case.  You will need to discharge any static electricity in your system.  You can do this by touching the bare metal of the case once you have removed the side cover.

 

Remove the 24 pin connector from the motherboard.  There is a lever on the front of the connector which needs to be pressed to release the connector.

 

Once you have the connector free take a paperclip and insert one end in the socket of the green wire, and the other end in the socket of any black wire.

 

Make sure that the connector and the paperclip are not touching any components inside the case.

 

Plug the PSU cord back in.  The PSU should start after it is plugged back in.  If it start and quits as it has been the PSU needs to be returned to either exchange it for another or get your money back.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
