about a month ago i came here for help in picking a new power supply and graphics card. I was told to get a Corsair CX V2 430 and the graphics card was Radeon HD6770. I got the power supply about a week ago there was no direction what so ever on how to install it i think i plugged in everything right and the computer wouldn't come on but there was a yellow light on inside the tower. I was than told that i needed to replace the power supply so i returned it and i was sent a new one. Today i got the new one again no directions on how to install it i think i installed everything right again and still the computer wont turn on but there's a yellow light on inside the tower. I have not installed the graphics card yet. any idea why my computer wont turn on? my computer is a dell inspiration 530 not the slim version
Just a wild guess, but did you make sure that's plugged in? It's easy to overlook. And also sometimes possible to plug in backwards, which can also cause problems since it's polarized. So another thing to check for (make sure the pins match in the direction they're facing)
also you need to plug a 6 or 8 pin connector to the video card you bought the old stock cards dont need power.
also check your power plugs on your drives you may have missed a pin and the ps wont power on do to a short.
