Ok, that was cool. When I connected green and black, the drive started running. Does that mean the PSU is fine or that it is putting out too little power?

It means the PSU is not totally dead. It could be a problem with the motherboard, the cpu, pci cards. It could also be a problem with the supply being "weak" as you suggested or a problem with something other than +12 and +5. I would try reconnecting things back to the PSU to see if you can find the one that breaks it.
