Just finished building my pc, plugged power into the PSU.....nothing. Now the power switch is stuck to one side on the psu, what have i done??

Can you give us details of your system?

680i SLI mobo
Q6600 GO
500 gb HDD samsung

But i have no lights at all, i was wondering wether i had fused something... It seem very strange. There is a ticking noise coming from the PSU as if it getting power. Obviousl noone has had hthis problem before.

There is no graphics card in it at the moment but that shouldnt make it do that should it

Ive just been and had another play. The button on nthe psu is stuck on the "1". If you press it on to the "0" it just flicks back. Does this help?

Does for me, ITS BUSTED!!! you gonna need to buy another, one unless you can take it back to where you bought it from on the premise that the switch is faulty, get them to replace it...

it worked before. Then when i pluged it in it did that. has it fused it?

Fused MAYBE, but it seems to me that the I/O switch is busted (works on a rocker) and one side of it is probably snapped, doubt that you will get a new one for it, easier to just buy another PSU...

What i would do is put a new PSU in your PC, take switch out of busted PSU you might get one similar from an electrical store, put in busted PSU and use it for a spare....

but when i hold down the button i still have no power. Surely that is nto right....

Send or take the PSU back switch is faulty as it should flick as it is only a rocker switch. But if its on "1" it should start, but not without a graphics card or onboard graphics

yes so are we agreeing the psu is arsed and i need a new one?
