I need to jump start my psu, but not by connecting green and black wire, becuase i suspect that the 24pin connector and it's wires are faulty. So can i trace back green and black wires from the 24 pin connector all the way to the psu board and jump start them from there?

Thnx in advance for your help.

Please, don't even think about it...

Don't plug in a PSU you've taken to pieces, and DEFINITELY don't poke around at it with paperclip, screwdriver or anything.

Thanx all for your replies.

I am not going to do anything with it, it is already at electronics repair shop. Just a thought I could give to the repair guy, as he told me that the psu board, capacitors, and soldering points are all good, and it is a waste not to be fixed. He can't figure out why it is not starting, and i suspect it is the 24 pin with the wires were the problem lays.
