There is no indication that the PSU is receiving power at all. When i tried to turn the computer on nothing happened. No lights, no flashing, nothing.

I tried doing the paperclip test with a harddrive and nothing happened.

Which PSU is it? Is it one of those with a power switch on the back?

It was an EVGA 550 GS. I took it to best buy and they said it was dead, so I bought a Corsair CX750 and it still isnt turning on. I don't understand.

Lol forgot to hit the power button on the PC case... sigh. It's been a long day. Still sucks though that my original PSU was DOA.

If it breaks, I recommend you don't buy another CX750:

I ordered a 550 G2 and picked one-day shipping, so here's to hoping it gets here before I have to leave for the airport.
