Make sure the front header cables are connected properly to your motherboard header pins.

Make sure they are in the right way, consult your motherboard manual the positive and negative charges need to be in the right place

ok then, check that your power supply is connected to everything including your motherboard and that the switch on the back of it is on

ok then I'm guessing it is def the header pins, recheck if they are inserted correctly. Please read your motherboard user manual to find out how

What's the PSU model? Is it an old power supply? If yes, then it might be defective. Try the test on youtube (link above).

Then I guess that it's defective. Have you tested it?

Then a 500W one would be enough. Corsair is fine. But, if intending to upgrade the graphics card in the future, I suggest a 600 W one.
