Not totally sure, but the mobo may be grounded out. Its a lot of work, but you may wish to take the board out of the case and place it either on a box, or some other NON CONDUCTIVE material. Be careful you do not zap it either, as thats quick way to waste a board : )

Also take out ALL expansion cards, other than video (if you have one).

If it boots up fine, then there is something shorting out the bottom of the motherboard. Check to see if you have any extra standoffs in there, or if their misaligned, or if there is any metal touching the underneath at all, other than exactly where the standoffs should go.
