The reason the MB does not allow the PSU to start up fully is because the "standby" circuit on your MB detects a hardware problem with one of the MB components and in order to protect it from damage, it shuts down the PSU.

Now that you have forced the PSU to start-up, the MB components (CPU?) could be completely damaged. No smoke yet?

✔ Best Answer
I don't know why, but people from India always call a power supply unit (PSU) a SMPS, & always refer to the tower & everything in it as a CPU. A CPU is the processor, aka Central Processing Unit. THIS is a CPU.

Using a jumper wire from green to black should ONLY be used for testing a PSU. You should NEVER force start a PSU when it's connected to a motherboard. And the beep code you're hearing is a warning that there's a problem. The fact that you're even hearing the beeps mean that both the CPU & PSU are working. Unfortunately, you didn't post the make/model of your motherboard to confirm what the beep code means, but usually, 3 short beeps = memory problem; 3 long beeps = keyboard problem.
