power unit problem

this is the second time i had to return my fma 535watt psu,the problem is when i connect 4 pin connector nothing powers up,if i just connect 20 pin it powersup but no post message,i used y old seasonic 300 watt psu which worked,soe are saying that it could be compatibility issue,how true it is i havent got a clue,what could really be the casue???

Have you checked to make sure the monitor cable is firmly arttached to the card and that the card is fully inserted into the motherboard. It may be worth your while to remove the monitor cable ,-- Unplug from main first-- unplug the card, blow out any dust,wipe the terminals of the card (Carefully)and re-connect to see if this makes a difference, why did you change the PSU in the first place as it seemed that it is working (If it ain't broke-don't fix it)

this is a new build pc,only problem is the 4 pin connector,i mentioned earlier i had it replaced twice,when i use the old one it works
the psu modelis enermax eg565ax-ve(g)fma 535wat

just cannot understand 20 pin works but soon as i connect the 4pin then its dead

Just a thought some PSU,s have a voltage switch have you checked the correct voltage is selected

this doesnt require voltage switch as this is supposed to automaticaaly adjust the voltage

I can not see how it can be compatability problem. I would get a refund and get another seasonic.
