  1. From what I read, you are plugging it in while it is on.

    This PSU is 300 watts. If all of your hardware exceeds more than 200 watts, I would not try this PSU, and buy new one with more wattage.

    Please try to do it in this order:
    -Disconnect any wall outlet power to the power supply.
    -Connect the 4 pin CPU power, then the 24 pin motherboard power.
    -Plug in the power supply.
    -Press the on button.

    If you still have no luck, your PSU is most likely dead, and I would recommend buying a more reliable one.
  2. You never try to plug the 24 or 4 pin power connectors with the PSU on. You have most likely shorted the mobo out.
  3. I knew that is not the right way to connect the PSU.It was working for couple of year now.All of sudden the power will not turn on.That is what i found while connecting my 24 pin connector the power goes off.
    you think PSU with more watts will work .makes sense to me i will try that out

    I would try to buy a PSU with better reliability. Here is a standard cheap PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-139-026&Tpk=N82E16817139026

    The 300 watts should be fine, unless you have lots of high wattage hardware. I would need a list of everything in your computer to figure that out.
