Hey guys, I've recently upgraded my video card to an ati radeon 4650. I therefore needed a new psu, so I got one and installed it. It didn't work.
I rma'd the thing from newegg and they sent me another. I tried it again, same thing. I think it was something I did, so I researched it and troubleshot it.
The psu is fine, it works plugged in outside of the case without any hookups to the cpu. The psu works in the case but only plugged into the 20 pin connector.
as soon as I plug the 4 pin cpu power connector in, the psu won't boot up anymore. I can't figure it out for the life of me. Any help would be appreciated!!
