Followed the manuals as much as a male possibly can. Two connectors (HD LED and something else in that mobo region) were not connected right polarity-wise, which I fixed and reconnected.
Turn on the PSU (has switch in the back) - nothing. Press the ON switch on PC - nothing. Noticed a hardly noticeable "click" inside PSU and also hardly noticeable current disruption in overhead lamp when switched PSU on. There was nothing at all - no fans running, no LEDs turning on, no beeps - total cadaver of a PC. NO smell of burning or smoking, either.
Took out the PSU, connected to power, tried turning it on by itself - still nothing. So, at this point I thought - it's PSU. Went out and bought a 600W this time. Connected it to the PC - same case scenario.
Now the PC is in the local "dude-shop", where they will run diagnostics on it.
QUESTION: What could be wrong based on this information? Spent over $1K on the parts for this thing, it's anything but generic!
STEPS TAKEN ALREADY: *Reset the PSU by pressing power button in with it unplugged for 10 seconds - did not work**Disconnected the Reset wire from mobo - nope*
Much obliged in advance.
