Anyways, I put in the psu, and hooked everything up to my understanding. 20-pin cord, 4-pin cord. The power switch, reset switch, hdd and power lights. Hooked the cd-rom, hdd, ram, pci expansions, agp video card, everything in properly. I go to turn on the pc, switch from both I / O on the back of the psu (at 120V), and I get nothing. Not a light, no spinning of the fan.
-I've double checked that this socket in the wall works, but have tried multiple.
-I've installed my old motherboard again just to make sure that the power connectors and the power supply were still good. They are.
-I've rearranged the positioning and such of the power connectors and lights.
The only thing that I can think of is that it was dead on arrival (which I'm doubting) No broken capacitors. The board was neatly wrapped in an anti-static bag. The bag hardly had a crease in it. Neither did the processor box. Everything just seems in mint condition, though I'm possibly wrong.
The only thing that I think that it could be is that I installed the processor wrong, or that I messed up something very stupid since this is my first time installing/replacing a motherboard and processor.
I should also mention that I hooked the board up on the anti-static bag, to make sure it wasn't the case shorting anything out, and it still failed to turn on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to determine if I'm doing something really stupid, or if either the motherboard or processor is damaged so I can send either one back.
Thanks a ton,
