Blown PSU

  Field Division 12:03 18 Oct 2006

My 400w psu blew when I plugged it into mains,it came with new case and is a new mother board too,I checked all things when I assembled the pc but seemed very strange when it blew,so I opened the unit to find the on board fuse blown and I had a further scan of the unit to find one of the components was broken,it looks as though the component was broken berfore what happened,maybe this was the cause of it to blow,the thing is I have opened up this which means I had to cut the label which joined both chassis to unit,What do you think of me taking this back to the shop from were i bought it from,do I tell them the full story or do I chance just saying that it doesn't work..

Suck it and see

If the PSU is new and does not work you still have rights under the Sale of Goods Act to take it back to the retailer. They cannot hide behind the fact that you broke the warranty label. Just go back, tell them it blew when you plugged it in. They should replace it.
