Its possible that you are shorting the switch. Either you nicked the insulation on the switch wires or you stripped off too much insulation. The bare wires are now touching after being crammed into the switch box.

Another possibility is you wired the ground wire to a switch 'hot' and one of the black wires to the switch's ground wire.
