pinkerton Posted December 22, 2010 Share Posted December 22, 2010 Hello, new member here. And new PC enthusiast. I need some help. I bought a new AX1200 PSU because I heard it was one of the best and would be a worthy investment for future upgrades to my computer. I went through all this work and patience to remove my old PSU and cables carefully and installed my new AX1200 with eager anticipation. However (As im sure Im not the first one) when I hit the power button, the PC turned on for 1 second and dropped offline. I went through all of my connections on the motherboard, GPU, HDD, Optical drives, etc and nothing. I even get an orange light when I connect power to the PC on the I/O card (but this is before I hit the power button) I wanted to try the PSU test (green wire and black wire) however they are all black wires so no luck there.. :( I am eager to try and remedy this problem with someones help, but I dont want to go out and buy any "power supply testers". I mean, this isnt really my fault the damn thing doesn work (if thats the issue). I just want to install it and move on. It cant but help feeling a bit discouraged, like this is a little bit unfair. Sorry for my frusteration, any help please! Thank you in advance. and I will be cooperative to any advice :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
