    make sure the PSU is plugged into the surge protector/upc

    make sure the switch on the psu is fliped to 1 (if there is one)

    make sure the psu is plugged into the mobo

    PSU = the Power Supply Unit

    it's the big metal box with a fan that supplies DC electricity to your computer

    make sure you have everything plugged in correctly, that includes the cpu, hsf, ram, and video card...just the necessities to boot

    the comp does require a video card in place to boot, but that's not where you're probem lies I'm sure

    just make sure that everything necessary is plugged in correctly

    I just feel like there is something somewhere that is not plugged in or connected right

    if you have a PSU that you know is working right, you might want to try using it...just in case you have a faulty PSU
