    re psu help

    i put the computer together and i got it to turn on mine and all...so once i had vista installed i turned it off and added the other DIMM of my ram and then i go the BSOD. i took the ram out and all was fine...it started up but then out of nowhere it would just start powering off. i later realized that i had installed the motherboard without the spacers, so i took it apart and reinstalled everything. now i just get these flashes of power when i plug in the PSU and flip the switch on the PSU (not on the computer), but only the fans that came with the case and the psu flicker...is the MB shorted out??? i hope not because i dont want to have to rma it.

    any ideas?
