There aren't power supplies on notebook motherboards. The power supply is the AC/DC adapter you plug in.

Anyway, you have some kind of short, obviously, as you stated. Take the board out of the case and try to boot it up without. If it works fine, you have a short between the board and the case - else, you have a damaged component on the motherboard, most likely the power jack itself.
