The power supply was obviously bad. Doing what you did to a dual voltage power supply, it should just not have turn on. That said, since it did short circuit, there's a question of did it damage anything inside the computer. With the side off, closely inspect for burnt or discolored wires and/or electric components The only real way to find out is to try another power supply. Preferably matching the power requirements of the original one, i.e. 350 watts.
