    Hi. Ive been having trouble with my computer I bought a new power supply 550w and have all the cables in the computers motherboard but when i turn on the computer my power supply fan, case fan, GPU and cpu fan doesn’t turn on yet my 2 sticks of RGB ram glows bright and when I plug in a mouse and keyboard they also light up. It’s strange because my old power supply turned everything on but didn’t turn on because my I didn’t have an 8 pin for the cpu im very confused and need help

    If the CPU fan doesn't turn on, immediately power off to avoid damaging the CPU.
    Consult the manual of the motherboard to see which plugs you have to use. Which motherboard do you have?
