Default Whats Wrong With Psu?!?!?!

I jsut bought a new PSU from frys, its the kind where you can "customize" the wires ie. you only need one peripheral only insert on of those into the PSU where there are 2 slots for them. anyway i get the new PSU in and turn it on..... nothing, i don't think i bl;ew it up because there is no sizzling, and so i figured hey, i may have knocked something lose, so i reseat RAm and video card. then i test again I hear the HD runnint the fans are all running whats going on here?

and if it might be a noob mistake please post it im am really tired and may have forgotten to do the obvious....


-thanks

I don't want to be in trouble and out some money....

are the fans on your CPU working, i


f so maybe there is something wrong with your graphics card... does it need external power i know some cards need that, also maybe the connection to the monitor is not plugged in all the way

Default Re: Whats Wrong With Psu?!?!?!

i have the first with an extra 4 pin part (2 of them on beside the 20 and another on it own) but not the second. I pulled the mobo out and there are not any singe marks any where its like it used to be only Im not getting any display..... it says "warning only for 24 pin " and I only plugged in the 20 part on accident could that have been what fried it?


thanks
