  1. I'm having some issues with a replacement PSU I bought. I've connected it all up as you should, but when I power the unit on, the power light on the front of the case just flashes, the PC doesn't actually power up. Any ideas guys? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    What psu did you install? Double check your connections, and make sure your psu doesn't have any "messed up" pins in the connectors.

    Further PSU Problems

    The PSU model is: FSP ATX-300GTF, I'm thinking that when the original one went kerput, it could have messed up other components? (ie Motherboard/Hard Drive etc) Is this right?

    Front panel conns may be connected wrong. Flashing led usually means standby mode, and lesser an error. Check and post ...

    This means the PSU is on, but not started, It gets and gives power, but only on the 5Vsb line ...
