try the paperclip trick to test ur PSU if it powers on itself.
try this:
put your paperclip into the pin with the green wire and the other end into one of the two black ground wires beside the green wire. It doesn't matter which one, either will work.

go here for more clear explanation :

BTW u dont hav to wrap it with tape

if its new it should work, u probably connected the power switch in the wrong socket.
