how many hard drives you got?

by CG IT In reply to My power supply is wrong?

sounds like a short somewhere in the hard drive.

if you have more than one HDD, unplug the power from other one, plug in this one and see if you POST. If the computer doesn't start, bad drive.

Wired Wrong?

by TheChas In reply to My power supply is wrong?

Check the drive connector to make sure that the wires are in the correct order.

It should be pin 1, Yellow, Black Black, Red for pin 4.

It is also possible that you have a dead hard drive that is shorting out one of the power supplies.
