When I press the Power
button, I can only hear click sound in Transformer case (power supply) and
nothing turns on, then I have to reset the power supply in the back in order
to trying again, and nothing happens when I try again.

I had to put all the things back ( processor, memory video card etc) back
into my other mother board to run the computer again. There is no physical
damage that I have seen or anything out or ordinary. Simply mother board
shorts out for whatever reason.

I connected the stuff to it again without almost anything connected to it and there was the same problem, does not turn on, even fan is dead, BUT when I reset the power supply and disconnect 4 pin power cable and leave the 20 pin cable in, the fans work and so does HD but without the 4 pin connector it's useless.

Is this a problem with the motherboard?

Well if the power supply is clicking like that, its not healthy and should be replacced. It's obviously run out of juice on the 12v line as that 4pin connector provides power to the processor. Without that, depending on the board, you have no system.

Replace the power supply in the first instance. If it does it again then suspect the motherboard.
