CSS not loading

Once you add new css file to your project at that time you need to check 2 things.

1) Add file name in .info file.

2) Clear the cache after adding it into .info file from performance page.

Hope it helps.

You are enabled css

You are enabled css compression through admin > Settings > Performance, so the compressed css file is creating at sites/default/files/css directory and the same file is loading.

If you disable the css compression, you can see all the css files from drupal core, contributed modues and theme.

The css compressor will combine all the css files from drupal core, contributed modules and themes and create a compressed file in sites/default/files/css.

When you are developing, disable the css compression, when you deploy on production server, enable css compression.

Thank you

you might be using theme like garland in which you change your color configuration. Such type of theme creates their own CSS file when you make changes to color or other configuration. First provide us information that which theme you are using and from which base theme you have started to make your theme.

For whom may run into this problem: it's can be an simple file permission issue, check if permission and ownership are correct for your files and folders
