    So nothing at all happen? Wow, I got a lot of beeping and it turned out I hadn't connected the molex cable to my video card but you're not getting anything. It may be the PSU, but make sure everything is mounted correctly too. You don't recall any static discharge I hope.

    Make sure all of the jumpers on the motherboard are set correctly, and that all power headers are connected. Many motherboards have additional 4-pin, 12v headers and will not function correctly without it.

    AT is so right (as always :)), I screwed up with my jumpers the first time so I had to figure it out with the manual the 2nd, bloody things weren't color coded.
