Whoa... a short. That's my only thought.. If you have another PSU laying around that'll work with your comp/wattage, try it out.

First thing... don't panic, it’s just a computer. : p

I didn't read the entire thread, but my suggestion is to disconnect every cable, and dismantle all of the parts 1 by 1. Re-seat every thing and see if this fixes the issue. Sometimes a loose cable or incorrectly seated component can cause really weird problems.

By what you describe, almost anything could be causing your problem.

You would have to eliminate the issue 1 part at a time. Unless you have spare parts, this can be hard to do. Without extra parts you can disconnect the more obvious ones your system doesn’t need to boot up and function. Extra ram sticks, extra hard drives, floppy, DVD room, etc, etc. Then see if the system stabilizes.

Do you have another computer you can easily swap parts with?

good luck!

Did you install the Motherboard standoffs? (the red/black cardboard washers that came with the motherboard)
Because plugging in the 3.5mm jack grounded it...
Basically your mobo is shorting out, remove the entire thing. Install the cardboard standoffs and try again

My guess is the PSU and/or the motherboard went to hell. But if everything is running I think the motherboard just died.

Got anyone you can test your stuff in?

Also the hard drive will power up when power is applied. If fans are working then PSU may be okay (but don't count on it). Assume everything is fried until you can test and rule them out.
