    Hey i changed my power suppy the other day they are virtually the same except one has more plugs so I wanted it and the newer one has only 5 amps where the other is six. but anywho I changed them and it word like twice then cut out and now it will not turn on until I unplug it from the motherboard. but the weird thing is my old one doesn't even start when its pluggerd into the motherboard but they both work just fine when when uplugged from the motherboard so what gives?

    Possibly too much draw. Did you plug in the P4 plug?
    Post complete specs.

    Are you maybe switching the Power switch plugs on the mother board. Either plugging them in the wrong places or switching the positive with the negative?
