Default Unsure about problem with PSU

Hello! I'm a new member and I need a little bit of help that I couldn't find any precise information about my PSU.
This morning I was not able to turn on my PC anymore. Power is not being delivered at all so I thought it was the PSU. After some basic tests by changing outlets, my PSU delivers power to parts after pressing the button, but for a very small fraction of a second. I'm using a multimeter test tutorial and during the step where pins 15 and 16 are short fused, the same thing happens but more consistently, as the power will briefly spread for a moment after every time I create the short fuse. My pins also don't show any voltage at all and no continuity. Before I decide to throw some of my savings into a new PSU, I want to ask if it could potentially be a problem with the cables, and if there are any other tests besides this one to make sure my PSU is dead.

yup... but you'll have to cough up $13.

Windows 10 .... It wants to be found and installed so it can be the one Operating System to rule us all.

I wish it was only 13$, and that amount in my currency doesn't help either. Thanks either way
