    Hi guys
    Got a problem
    I was buliding a circiut with switches, which turn lights off or on.
    I tried it on a normal PSU (not PC-PSU) and i works.
    Then i found an old AT-PSU which i can turn on or off wihtout a mobo.
    But that didnt work
    Here is my "circuit" with the Switch, PSU, Junction box (u can ignore this) and a LED.

    But there seems to be a short.
    Do u think the AT-PSU is damged or somethin'?
    I dont know
    i hope u can help me
