Because SOMETHING isn't working?? Does it start at all or totally dead? Please explain.
A good power supply will shut off if there is a voltage problem. Check to see if it has a manual reset button on the back. If not it will reset itself after a while. As to possible MB damage, inspect MB for hot spots, browning on paper caps etc..

The answer is NO, it will not start if the jumpers are on 2-3. Must be on pins 1-2.
