I just replaced my power supply and heat sink fan. When I turn the computer on the cooling fan and heatsink come on but nothing else is coming on. A yellow light comes on by the on button but I think a blue light is suppose to come on after it gets going. I'm sure I hooked the power supply up correctly. Any ideas? Thanks
I'll be back

    Sounds like a power supply problem.

    have you tried anything else since the OP?

    double check that your monitor cable didn't come loose.

    double check the connections to your motherboard.

    reseat your RAM.

    also, take a look at the capacitors on the different boards. I recently replaced somebody's video card after their computer started having problems. he thought it was his monitor going bad, but i opened up the case and saw a capacitor on the video card that had exploded. i replaced the card and everything is fine now.

    hope that helps. :)
