Hi

I am have difficulties powering up my new computer and I have no idea what the problem could be. This is my first time building a custom made computer.

My friend assembled the computer (he's built several before), but there was no power supply.
I.e The psu fans didn't spin, the lights didn't turn on and all other parts of the computer obviously didn't start working.

I checked the Cable's fuse and plugged in the cable with another electrical device but the cable still supplied power to the electrical device, therefore I concluded it was fault Power supply unit. I sent the PSU back to Overclockers and they provided me with a new Power supply unit.
My friend plugged in all the pins to componenets et cetera. And then when the power supply unit was plugged in the socket there was still no power.

My friend suggested the problem is the build up of static in the computer and recommended I should take it to PC World to check what the problem could be.

I want to minimize costs as much as possible considering I am student :) 

Any Suggestions?

Is the little switch on the back of the PSU turned to the ON position?

Does your mobo have an led power light on it? Did you check the power switch to the mobo to see if ots on correct or to the correct pins

There is only one switch which the power off/on one. I have checked around the component and there does not appear to be a another switch :/

Did you check the switch used to turn your computer on that connects to the mobo
