i think its a 230 or 250 im not sure, anyways i went to turn my computer on it wouldnt. so i unplugged it and plugged it back in, now as soon as you plug it in the ps powers and clicks, board doesnt power. i thought the noise was the board at first but i narrowed it down by removing component be component. also removed the ps and mobo and tried it out of the case. which is how i found out it was the power supply. im pretty sure i need a new one, i have 2 others but neither have the atx 4 pin. thanks if any help arrives

The first thing i replace on nonbooting computers is the power supply. I do not even install the PS, just hook everything up and try starting the computer. If it still does not bootup then there are other problems to look into like bad connections, bad memory, bad video card, bad drives, bad motherboard, bad cpu. I check then in the above order.
