Ok here's the situation now:


I can turn on my power supply, the P/S fans light up and spin, as well as the PC fans doing their lighting and spinning. The system, however, will not start up.

DFI LanParty series is what I have for a mobo.

can you be moer specific like how many slots are on the motherboard how many slots does the plug have what is the power supply make and model.. some motherboards for the atx slot have 8 plugs but then your power supply only has 4 plugs thats safe or are you talking about the 20 pin one that could possibly have 24 pins?

Ok the Power Supply is a 650w with a 20 pin, the mobo is a DFI with a 24 pin... So will a simple 20 to 24 converter do the trick? Can the 20 pin be plugged into the 24 pin safely?

oh no thats fine I used to have a power supply with only 20 pins you are able to plug it into the 24 pin without problems but read through the motherboard manual They recommend that for high end graphics cards and a system with alot of power consuming devices you should get a 24 pin plug ps and if your motherboard can handle it a 8 pin ATX 12V plug but yeah being 650 W I think it should do fine mine was 400 and it blew out as for being compatible with the different sizes read the manual but it should be ok.
