Power supply wired incorrectly?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone!

So I was sleeving my Thermaltake 700w PSU the other day, and as some of you may well know, there are only 23 out of 24 pins taken up in Thermaltake Litepower PSU's. (one has two wires). Now, I am aware that I somehow got the 'blank slot' mixed up and now my power supply will not work!

I opened one at work and managed to wire the 24-pin so it at least LOOKS correct. However, when all plugged in and I push the power button, the computer only lights up / comes to life for a half second and then turns off again.

This whole time, the 'Boot Device LED' on my motherboard (ASUS P7P55D-E) remains green.

Is it safe to continue with trial and error until I have the correct arrangement of wires?

I have photos from work of a correct wire arrangement from the Litepower 700w but unfortunately around the blank slot there are rows of the same colour (eg. red, red, red, blank, black)

Advices please?!

Use the jumping method to see if the power supply works, don't plug it into your board to test it.

You have to jump the green wire with a ground.
