New power supply makes fan run constantly

My computer started shutting off randomly, and then eventually it wouldn't boot up at all. When I take off the connection to the motherboard and turn switch on power supply on/off, it will turn fans for a couple seconds, then nothing. I have to unplug the power to motherboard and plug back in, then it will turn fans for a couple seconds again. I brought in to a place to check if power supply was bad and they confirmed it.

So I installed the new power supply. When I turn the switch on the back of the power supply the fan on the mother boards instantly turns on and stays on. I get power to the cd/rom, and I hear the hard drive spinning. There is no way to turn off the fans unless I turn the switch off on the back of power supply.

All that being said, does this mean the mother board has gone bye bye?

It will not boot up still with the new power supply.
