Default power supply fan and led comes on for a second and powers off

So I was switching cases out today and installing a new gtx 460 card and now when powered on, the psu fan and led come on for a second and immediately powers down. So I tried switching back to the original card and am still having the same effect. What could be causing this?

Thanks in advance!!!!

Mike

Double/triple check all of your connections. Do a cmos reset.

What's the PSU / system specs?

its possible the psu gave up, although usually you see smoke,hear a pop,etc.

i would advise to leave it off power for a little bit.

System fan has failed

I hate it when folks cross-post, things can get confusing real quick.

Hmmm yeah. The problem was kinda obvious from the beginning anyways.
