atx power supply

Is it possible to get an atx power supply to start up other than shorting the pins on the mobo

Yes,connect it to the mobo....seriously i dont think so.

I take it you think you have either a dead mobo or dead psu ?

If you connect wires 13 and 14 on the power supply side of the connector ie cut wires and twist bared ends connected to the power supply, the power supply should start if OK suggesting that the mobo is faulty. If ok then you will have to reconnect the two cut wires.
