Okay I recently purchased a power supply(Dibalotek DA Series PSDA350 350W ATX) to replace my friends burnt out one on his old computer. I've never installed one before....but I Plugged everything in from my computer to it. Then I plugged the power cord into a working socket...flipped the switch on and nothing...power supply didn't turn on. It is brand new out of the box. Any special reason why its not turning on? Or did newegg sell me a broken Power Supply?

Ok you bought the PSU for your friend and connected everything off your pc??
You have me confused.
Pull the old PSU out and install the NEW one fastening 1 screw to it.
Attach the DVD/CD-ROM power connector, hard drive power connectors, and any other power supply attachments needed.
Attach the motherboard ATX power connector last.
Once you are sure the power connectors are secure, you can test the system by attaching the external AC connector to the power supply, reconnecting external components (mouse, keyboard, sound, video, etc.), and turning the unit on. Once all the hardware on the computer is powered, and the system starts correctly, you are in business. Shut down the computer. Use the remaining screws to ensure that the power supply is firmly attached to the PC case, reattach the PC case cover, and connect all external peripherals

There's a reason I told you to properly install it.
Pull your PSU out , install the new 1 as if you are replacing yours.
Fasten at LEAST 1 screw.
Then follow my connetion instructions above and try again.

Did as instructed. I just completly fastened the PSU in the machine. Connected in the order instructed. When I flip the PSU switch on the motherboard light turns on. When i hit the on switch for the whole computer. nothing happens.

Is it 20 pin or 24 pin?
Is the 4-pin ATX 12V connector attached?

Sounds like its defective.
If you just bought it I'd take it back and get a replacement.
If you can't do that,try it in the PC you actually bought it for.
Other than that your out of luck.
