    if it is an atx, you should be able to find a green wire on the main power connector. ground that wire and you should be good to go.

    atx is just the form factor of the power supply. it shouldn't do break anything, it will function as if you are running your computer with it. people do it for electronic hobbys all the time.

    All you have to do is put a jumper on the 20 pin connector between the green wire and one of the black wires with a large paper clip to turn on the power supply.You can watch this video to show you how.

    Yes plug the power cable in the wall and turn the switch on with the jumper on the connetor and you should have power.The fan on the power supply should come on if it is hooked up correctly.

    There are a lot of good tutorials on Youtube that make it easier to understand some things better.
