Has this laptop suffered major damage - been dropped or had liquid or some conducting powder spilt over it ? Or, just possibly, been used in very adverse environmental conditions ?
Short circuits can also develop because components have failed due to age and, due to the technologies like surface mount, used on motherboards, such components are almost impossible to replace. If you are certain that there are short circuits on this board then it is almost certain that it is beyond repair and the only cure would be a replacement.
A quick google suggests that this laptop was released to market in 2012, so it is probably 5 or 6 years old. You may well have difficulty finding another board although it might be worth searching eBay. If you can't find one then it is time for a new, or at least another, laptop.

I think you are confusing short circuits and open circuits.
A short circuit is a fault condition where there is no resistance between the supply line and the zero volt line. this results in a current flow which tends towards an infinite current and will normally blow every fuse and protection trip in sight, or, if you are really unlucky, start a fire !
An open circuit is one where either a component has failed 'open' or a track has been broken, often due to a crack. Cracks are often caused by drops. If you have a fine-tipped soldering iron and are good at soldering then it is possible to repair these, usually by bridging the gap by soldering a piece of insulated wire to each side of the crack in each track. However the tracks on mobos are very fine and your chances of a successful repair are not good.
I still think your best chance is either a replacement motherboard or a replacement laptop.

and I assume your not a technician with formal training. as seeing multiple shorts can be common depending what your checking. resistors, diodes, capacitors and trace runs. without experience and training what your calling a short circuit is probably supposed to be that way.
what are you checking when you see these short circuits?

What the OP is assuming is a short circuit is continuity between components.
