Default My PSU has a problem...

Hi Guru,

I plugged cord(came with case) to outlet from wall, and try to plugged 4-pins connector to my 120mm fan for testing.

After open PSU's switch, it has nothing. Both of them doesn't work. Is my PSU failed? Is it neccessary to connect 24-pins to mobo before it works?

Thanks in advance.

for the PSU to work it needs to either be plugged into a motherboard, or........ short the green pin with any black pin on the motherboard connector with a paperclip.

did you hook up the front panel connections?

you have to turn the PSU on, and also hit the power button on the case.
