In response to Raziel, yes, that was the first thing I checked...to no avail
and in response to Samm, nope, the PSU did not start up. The light on the back of the PSU blinking indicated that it was attempting to start up...and failing miserably.
However, I did solve the problem ^___^! I tested the power supply the ol' fashioned way via manual start (copper wire, green to black...only 5v electric shock
), and it didn't work...so, that lead me to the conclusion that my PSU had failed somehow. So, I ran back out to COMPUSA, grabbed a generic $20 PSU, installed it, and everything's working just fine and dandy. Thanks a bunch for your support/concern!!
