I just bought a new PSU (OCZ StealthXStream 600W PSU - SLI Ready ATX2.2 12cm LED Fan - Ebuyer
) but I've had some problems trying to make it work!
Everything went well enough. I could connect everything to how it was, but then I noticed something. I got to the main power supply connector...thingy (yes I'm knew to all this! sorry for my lack of detail
The highlighted red square is all that my PSU fits into it. It fits in fine, but then there's the 4 other square...things..pins I think they're called? I don't know! :P
NOTE: This isn't my mobo, it's just one I found on Google, but I couldn't explain it in words and I don't have a good enough camera to take a clear picture of my own mobo
Any way, after I had connected everything a green light came onto the motherboard. I presume this means the PSU is feeding power to the mobo, but when I actually try and turn on the computer nothing will happen. Not even the fan spins. :\ I'm currently using my old PSU again to post this message (400w).
So, would I be right in saying this can't possibly work because the PSU doesn't have enough pins or whatever to fit into the mobo?
have I just wasted £60? :|
Sorry if I've not said enough to explain whats happening, but I'll try and answer your questions as best I can
(if you guys can try to help
