    Out of curiosity, does the PSU continue running while you say no lights, no fans, no buzzes, no nothing?

    Just checking:

    Is the power supply's EPS12V 8-pin power cable connected to the motherboard's ATX12V1 connector in the upper left rear corner, above the heatsink?

    I know of one experienced builder who once forgot to connect this cable.....ME and I'm sure that I'm not the only one.

    It never starts running from what I can tell. It makes no noise, the fan never comes on, and there are no lights on it from what I can see.

    Double checked that too :) and it's locked in. Thanks for the thought though.

    I'd at this point, knowing the PSU behaves that way, pull the MB/CPU/RAM out of the case, place it atop the BARE box the MB came in, and bench it there. Possibly a short that the PSU recognizes and shuts down on.

    Okay, did all this and getting the same results as before. Only sign of life is the brief flash of light on the network port, same as before.

    Well .......... Bummer. Now that it's out of the case you may as well place it somewhere safe until you get that new PSU to test with.

    Keep us posted.

    Oh. If you're NOT mechanically challenged you can test if the PSU turns on. This is NOT a voltage test, only that it can turn on.

    Thanks for that tip! The PSU DID turn on. So I'm guessing it's not the PSU at fault now. Or could it still be?
