So I put it together

RE: So I put it together
I haven't heard about a double psu pc. I know of servers that run 1 psu and are backed up by 2 others in case of psu failure. That way the server would stay up running without problems.

If humanly possible get the new psu to power your old pc completely. The orange led indicates an error. You don't want that Tongue.

Alright, after some other activities, I was able to hook up the psu to my old motherboard (24 and 4 prong), 2 hdds, and 2 optical drives (did not bother with the floppy disk drive). Flipped the switch on the power supply on. Fan started spinning after a couple seconds and stopped spinning within 10 seconds. The front power button LED flashed green when I first started it up but then turned orange (heard a very quiet sound from the case when this happened) again after a few seconds and it would not turn on. Put back all the old psu cables and here I am yet again.

So psu is the problem most likely, or do any of the details contradict that? As far as I know (doesn't mean much), I am plugging in the right stuff.

Yup. Sounds like a DOA psu. Send it back and get a new one! If your current pc works with the old psu then it's definitely the psu.

I hope you get a new one fast!

HAZZAH! Indeed it was the psu. Got the replacement today and put the test boot together. The fans kept going and going just like the increasing rate of my heartbeat from joy of it working. Such a relief to know it was just that part and hopefully not me screwing things up. All set up now.

Thanks once again for all the help. I will be sure to keep a post-it in my mind that hardware revolution helped me build my first computer.
