Buy a new one.

I think that I may have found the problem. There is an extra brass standoff on my case. I think it is grounding the power that comes through there. I will see how this works out.

Your going to have to replace that power supply regardless. Rather you get things working or not. It's awful. If your psu goes out it might take your motherboard with it. I use to have a raidmax 450 watt psu trying to be cheap and had to pay for it.

If you have all of your mounting screws in correctly you should be generally safe from your mobo shorting out from touching the case walls. I'd recommend taking the mobo out the case and trying things out that way. But it honestly doesn't sound to me like you have a lot of experience building computers.

So instead I'm going to recommend you to find someone else to help you out. Someone that can come by and help you get things started. It's not a bad thing to have a little help. Building a computer seems simply but there's a ton of small mistakes that could be made. It's best to have someone help you through your first build. That way you'll know sure your doing everything right.

I am a noob. Anyway, I had the wires set up by a friend who was stopping by and didn't start it up until after he left. I will be getting help with it tomorrow and it should work as I don't have the standoff sitting there anymore.


BTW, I will replace the power supply soon, as it seems everyone says I should.

You should replace it because you have researched it and found out the best psu for your computer. Not because everyone said to.
