The confusing part is that the lights on my motherboard are lit up ( power and reset buttons connected directly onto the mobo ) ... So, there you have it. Did it fry?
Same exact thing happened to me tonight, I was putting in a new HD and I shut it off for a bit and I booted up nothing would come on just some mobo lights would flicker and the fans would run for a split second then turn back off I made sure the connections to the HD were on all the way and nothin I didn't touch anything else in the computer. Guess my PSU bit the dust, looks like I'll be ordering a new one in a couple days.
