I do not believe that you will find a broken wire as it would have to be handle hundreds or thousands of times to break.
The PS's power good could be the problem.
The power supply tells the MoBo that the power is good by feeding +5
volts power to the MoBo thru the power good connector after all the
voltages (at least 5 volts) are up & stable.
Be warned this is a safety you are trying to bypass, this puts MoBo & all parts at risk
if the PS decides to really break in the future.
Just cut the power good wire from the PS & tap into a 5 volt line on the PS & feed to the
wire that supplies the power good to the MoBo plug. As always protect all bare wires & unused
cut wires with tape & or wire nuts.

If this is not the problem the PS maybe used as a second PS to power HS & such or as MS saids just throw the thing out. Yes I know you live in a different country but its a small price
to pay keep a computer going.
