Hi everyone, I hope you can help me.
Last night I was putting my components together after receiving my last part yesterday afternoon.
I had just installed everything, and I thought it was going great. I had checked the connectors were all the way in and plugged my cable into my socket. (it was the cable that came with the PSU)
I switched the wall socket on and then switched on the PSU. As soon as I switched the PSU on, there was a loud 'popping' sound and a bright, white light emanated from the PSU. I switched the unit off immediately and started worrying.
Since then, I have tried plugging in the PSU to the motherboard only, but there aren't any LEDs lit up.
Also, I didn't test any of my parts before putting it all together (clever I know, lesson learned
I was looking to get some advice on what to do next; is the PSU faulty and will it need to be RMA'd? Am I likely to have blown any other components?
I would be extremely grateful for any advice as to what to do next.
Many thanks in advance.
