Default Psu dead?

Ok so heres the deal.

It's my first build and I am running into some problems. I'm pretty sure I have everything hooked up correctly, but there's one major problem... When I plug the psu into the wall and I try to power it up nothing fan, lights, beeps, or anything. Not even the fan in the psu itself. Is there a way to check to see if the psu is dead? Or is there something I could be doing wrong? Here's my build...I've got an antec true power 2.0 550 watt, a biostar Tforce4 motherboard, an AMD Athlon 64 * 2 Dual-core Processor, corsair RAM.

Check your book to make sure the power and reset plugs are on the right pins.

Sounds odd....but did you make sure the power switch was switched on in the back of the PSU?

Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870

Well the problem turned out to be the reset and power jumpers, I moved them around and now it all works. All fans spinning, the small led's indicate that there are no errors and such. So I hooked up the monitor and am currently installing xp! Thanks for your help.....stupid jumpers.....
