So I bought a GPU that required 300w, But my PSU that came with my computer only supplied 240w. I ended up buying a power supply unit that supplies 320w because I couldn't find a 300w specifically made for the stupid Intel motherboard that doesn't have 20+4 pin slots. So after installing the New PSU correctly. (Made sure all wires are connected. Only one stick of RAM. All USB ports are empty. Plugged into the wall socket.) My motherboard doesn't light up. Nor will my computer do ANYTHING. No sounds other than the clicking of the power button. No fan movements. No beeps. Nothing.
SO! After scrounging the internet only to find people who had different conditions to these similar situations than what I have. I decided to snap pictures and let you guys figure out what is wrong because Quite bluntly. I. Don't. Know.

Top: Usual 240w PSU's Cords. (My motherboard is some Hewlett Packard monstrosity that doesn't have most wires but still runs.)
Bottom: New 320w PSU's Cords.
New power supply. Connected all wires. Green light turned off.

You may notice the OBVIOUS discrepancy of my new power supply unit not being inside my PC. Well, It's too FAT so, I'm just going to cover up the giant hole with something after I get this b*tch to work.
I don't know what's wrong since the labels say it should work just fine, But for some reason; It doesn't make my computer do anything. But with my standard 240w Power supply that comes with the computer, It works without a hitch. Even when THAT is outside of the case.
I would REALLY like to install the new GPU so I can run my games that use 3D graphics at more than 20 FPS.
NOTE: Attached is a 64-bit Dxdiag .txt file. If you can't tell, I REALLY want this to work, Since I have never messed with the (Physical) insides of a computer before.
