    So how do I get the PSU to turn on on ING?

    today I was doing the final connections and when I turned the key on IGN, nothing happened w/ the PC... is it supposed to turn on by itself or do I have to do any other things? I did connect the psu to the motherboard so that shouldn't be the problem..

    I tested the wires with a DC voltage tester and it did work so there is current and the connection to the PSU is good.. the problem is somewhere from the PSU because I hooked up my Xenarc to the PSU and that did not have any power either so it's the PSU but what about it?

    Thanks

    What PSU are you using?

    If you're using an AC PSU and inverter, then no, it won't turn on automatically.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    no, I'm using the OPUS 150

    so it should turn on automatically but why is not doing that?

    double-check your wiring here: FAQ: How to Wire an OPUS PSU

    also, the motherboard-switch-connector-wires on the 150 (black & red) seem polarity sensitive, so try changing the positions on one of the ends.
