Here are some photos. And, yes, i tried to turn on my pc with the only 3 connectors attached to mobo, but the result is the same - not functioning. I also think that is short somewhere.
Thanks for advices!

Looks alright to me. Do you have any striped wires touching any part of the mobo or case?

I wanted to share something with you guys. A few weeks ago I bought a ViewSonic Monitor 22 inch for $6.00 dollars.. Six dollars at a Garage sale.



I spent like $94.00 there at the sale and bought a Ton of stuff. Lots of drives and memory and all kinds of doodads. Actually when I got home I retailed everything that I bought and it added up to like $685.00 with all the stuff I bought but Most of all I was excited to see if I could get the monitor working.





Anyway. I notice the power supply inside the LCD Monitor was singing a squealing song so I knew it was capacitors leaking. When I opened it up there was 9 Big caps that were pregnant.


That's the way you tell if a capacitor is bad. They have a Round top instead of flat.

The ViewSonic PSU.



Anyway. I bought a kit on Ebay to fix the problem because these Monitors were using really cheap capacitors so I bought the Capacitors from them.





The Capacitors on this unit are really cheap so I bought the good ones for $13.99.

I installed them yesterday and today I have a new 22 inch monitor. It is lots bigger than my 19 that I had and is really nice. Amazing deal huh.

Check it twice.
That's was just the problem. There was one unnecessary standoff on the front of the video card side by side with another one in the middle, like Enigma8750 said. How could i miss this, i am ashamed.
Else one, thank you all guys and especially Enigma8750.
