jlewisfl Posted December 16, 2010 Share Posted December 16, 2010 I just got this from NewEgg and replaced the old supply with it. Computer won't boot, red blinking light instead of green power on light, no fans, etc. This is an HPdc5750 Athlon64 x2, several SATA and IDE drives, Radeon 5400 series card, nice computer, old P.S. was 400W rated and wheezing from exertion. The wires on the separate 6+2 pin 12v cables are color-reversed from the ones on the original PS that worked (It has a four pin plug, but offsetting the Corsair plug gets it socketed, no problem). BUT, the Corsair supply has yellow wires and black wires reversed from the same plug on the original supply. And I am not looking at the plug upside down because (A) it fits into the socket and (B) the little plastic latch is on the same side as on the socket. Haven't check with VOM yet, but if the Corsair's plugs ARE wired backwards, that would certainly kill the P.S. from starting up. Anybody else have this? Brand new P.S. If this IS the problem, can those pins be removed from the plug and switched around? That would be the simplest and quickest fix without having to ship back and forth. I know that can be difficult with Molex-type connectors. Thanks. Just got this thing yesterday and spent a frustrating hour and a half trying to figure out the problem, naturally I didn't have my VOM with me.
