My personal (but public) notes about my homebrewing, knitting and other random stuff

Turned on

Rejoice with me, for my computer which was dead is now alive again!

(If you missed that episode, you can read all about it here and here.)

The new PSU I ordered arrived today, so I fitted it this evening. A pretty straightforward job, involving no more than taking the cover off the case, unscrewing the old PSU, unplugging the various cables from the motherboard and disk drives, taking the unit out, putting the new one in, plugging in the relevant cables (the new PSU has a couple of extra connectors, but I'm pretty sure I don't need them as the machine worked fine without them before), putting the screws back and refitting the cover. I then plugged the machine in, hit the switch, and ...

... was very disappointed when nothing happened. Fortunately, before defenestrating the PC in my frustration, I remembered that the new PSU had an on/off switch on the back of it. On checking, I found that this was indeed in the off position. After switching it, the machine started beautifully.
