Just fitted a switched new psu, the on / off button on the front of the computer has a lead, 3 pin ( red, black, purple) which pluges in a socket from the old psu, the problem is the new one has not got one. how can I fix this?

Sounds as if you have put a new ATX psu in an old AT case.

The 'old' AT psu connected to the front switch as well as the motherboard.

The newer ATX psu's do not connect to the switch at the front of the case.

Some more information would help.
