hey guys! 2 days ago I installed a new Antec True Power 480w PSU and it ran well until last night when I turn on my pc and after about 5 secs she went dead. I opened up me pc and on my m/b theres a little red light that lights up when theres power going through it but that about it, nothing else powers up. I tried the test where you stick a paper clip into the power conector joining black and green conectors and she did bugger all, I then tried the same thing on 2 other older PSU's I had and they run ok so has my new PSU just died ???? sys specs below.

512mb DDR 333 MHz + 512mb DDR 400 MHz
G-Cube 9600XT (2.5ns)
XP Pro
assortted drives.......

ATM i've got it running with an older 350W PSU

Maybe ASUS hates you, not God. Then again, maybe both ASUS and God hate you. :wink:
It's just a PSU, you'll be fine. Get a new one, they aren't that expensive.
