I hope this is a troll post.

If not, you need to go out and buy a new quality PSU before you hurt yourself or fry your PC.

Obviously part of the power supply circuit protection has fluffed up.
maybe you should take a look also at the 24 pin Atx block on the board make sure all the pins are fine there. I mean if you jump start it via the wire loop method, then it would say the connector on the motherboard is at fault in some way.
