I recently bought a Rosewill 750-M PSU to replace an Antec Earthwatts 500. My computer worked fine before making the switch. After installing the Rosewill PSU, I attempted to boot. Fans spun up for a second, then turned off. After a second, they spun up again and stayed on. However, I had no video output. I put the old Antec PSU back in, and still had the same problem. I put another GPU in the computer, trying both PSUs, and still nothing. I switched out the monitor also, which didn't work. What should I do?

You should at least check whether it supplies the correct voltage on 3.3, 5 and 12 V. This is where PSUs usually fail (at least for me). –  Joey Oct 27 '12 at 16:36
is there any sound when the computer start up? –  Chin Oct 27 '12 at 16:39
Only sound I hear is the fans. –  Haxelgem Oct 27 '12 at 16:50
If there's no video, sounds like a bad pin/cable connection. Check the fan and power connectors of the GPU and CPU for bent pins, then try replacing the cables. –  Paul Sweatte Apr 16 '13 at 1:07
