I couldn't tell you exactly since everything is at my friends house. It was one of the pins toward the middle.
Take your psu out of your computer and take it to his place.
Plug in the 24 pin atx connector and plug in the cpu 4pin connector.
Start out with just the mobo, cpu and ram, no optical drive no hard drives or flas drives.
If it powers on fully, then yeah your right it is a psu that got shorted.
If it does not fully power on with the monitor you'll need to trouble shoot the computer.
Figure out which parrts work and dont work.
