Testing Motherboard/Power Supply

Currently, I turn my computer on, and nothing happens, except green light on mother board and yellow light on computer "On" switch. I started testing power supply. That obviously works. I disconected everything from power supply and started to reconnect everything one by one.

Everthing seemed to allow the test switch on power box to power everything except when i came to connecting the 2x2 auxiliary atx 12v power connector, into the mother board. It quickly shorts everything out, and i'm back to square 1 with just having the yellow "on" switch and green light on mother board, and fans shut off again.

Whats the problem?

I have a 500s 1.5 hertz gateway

Any help would be greatly appreciate.d...
