First off, here's my system:
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum
AMD 64 3200+ 939-Socket
4x Kingston 512MB DDR-400 PC-3200
Sony DVD 16X
Western Digital 120GB Serial ATA
Radeon X800 XL/Nvidia MX 4000
My case is from compusa and is a generic ATX case with a 400 watt power supply (which was included with the case).
The problem is, I switched out my old video card (Nvidia MX 4000 series) for my new Radeon. I plugged in the power and pushed the power button, but nearly nothing happened. The fan in the ps didnt start. The proc cooling fan spins for about a second then stops, the small fan on the motherboard spins for about the same time and the led light thats built in to the front of my case turns on for about the same amount of time as those other two fans spin. I thought that quite possibly i over drew the power supply so i switched back out the cards so that i had the old configuration. Now that the hardware is back to the way it was i turned the power on and i get the same result. Is this a tell tale sign that my ps is shot. The proc colling fan and led light go on for a sec but the ps fan doesnt move at all. Thanks for any help in advance.
