    It is difficult, to say the least, when we have no information about the system or the (new and old) power supplies to work with. Without any of this info, the only guess I can make is that you may have hooked up something wrong. Double check all connections and make sure all required connectors are hooked up to the motherboard. Also watch out for newer power supplies that have a "fan only" Molex connector. These are regulated by the thermal probe inside the PSU and if you have these hooked to any components you likely are running into a lack of power issue. If this isn't the case, then you might give us some details about your system so we can be of more help.

    You are still not really giving us any info about your system. What motherboard etc.? Why do you have a new powersupply and why is it that you need to reinstall Windows just because you have a new power supply? Did the old power supply die and wipe out your harddrive info at the same time somehow? Maybe it fried some other components at the same time? Everything is a guess at this point since we really have nothing to go on.
