Power Supply doesn't work with HD plugged in

By lynnbramwell66 ·
Hi there,

So, I replaced my power supply but when reconnecting everything, the computer won't boot up with Harddrives plugged in. It starts find without the HD plugged in. I have 4 separate HD and have tried plugging each of them into the power supply by themselves and when I hit the power button, nothing happens. Could it be something on the Mobo that has died?

Please help!

I should have said that the reason for changing powersupply was because the computer wouldn't boot up. Actually, the new powersupply is 50 watts more and a much better brand.

OK, so the computer wouldn't boot BEFORE the PS replacement....

... so, what makes you think it's a problem between the PS and HDD now, as the title to your original post indicates.

The motherboard is shot.
