PC won't start up

Problem: New PC is plugged but there is no power to start up

1. Motherboard may be short-circuited ie screw(s) may be touching board. Symptom: PC will not start up (power up) at all.

2. There is additional connector for power (JPW1) that is not connected. Symptom: PC is started, but after few seconds it shut downs itself
