I have this older computer that I recently bought a new hard drive for it because an older HD does not work. I got all the wiring and what not set up right, but when I press the power on button, nothing at all happens, no fans or lights. I've tried different power supplies, different power cables, even different wall sockets and nothing at all happens when I press the power button.

I also but new RAM for the computer, It is properly seated and i've tried it on both slots, no luck :/.

I read somewhere I could try "shorting" teh power supply cable or something, what is meant by this and how do I accomplish this?

specs:
AMD athlon xp 2800+
Atrix 500 watt PSU
AGP mobo
256MB RAM
Geforce 5500 256mb

Help is appreciated. You guys at TSF seem pretty swamped after christmas :D

Yes. There is no room to plug in the extra 4 pins. it's a 20 pin slot on the motherboard.
