Question about XION (XON-500F8X2-201) (XON-500F8X2-201) Power Supply
I purchased a XON-500F8X2-201 500w power supply to upgrade my son's HP Presario SR2163WM pc to allow him to use a better graphics card. When I install the new power supply, I cannot turn on the PC with the switch on the power supply, or the case. The power supply tests out, and when I returned the original (BESTEC ATX-300-12Z REV DDR) to the PC, it works fine. Is this a motherboard compatability issue?, or a configuration issue? Or stupid user trick?
Sorry for your problems. I would suggest that you make sure the MB works with the old PSU, and if so, send the XION one back. I have 2 XION PSUs, and they give me a couple problems... If you need further advice, go ahead and ask me at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.

You sound like you know what you're doing, so I expect you've made all the motherboard connections(Same as the original PS). Does the switch work when you test it? If so, it sounds like the PS is DOA. I've had bad luck with cheap power supplies.

Yes I suggest you learn basic electronics before you start fiddling and blowing things up!!
