The PSU has some overload protection but not the Mobo power buss. If you were lucky, you only shorted the PSU 12/5 volt output to the Mobo ground which took out the PSU. BUT if the PC will not start-up the 12V power buss on the Mobo was probably damaged as a result of accidentally grounding it with the fan plug.

It's impossible to identify which logic has been damaged without a schematic, and even if you had one, you would need specialized tools and parts to repair the board. Sorry, but the days of repairing these kinds of components are long gone.

Power. Start with power.

1) Make sure the 24-pin ATX main power cable is plugged in tightly to the mobo.


Ensure that the lock on the male connector (Power cable) is snapped over the tab on the female connector. (Mobo)
Push down on each wire to ensure it's metal terminal connector, is plugged on tightly to each pin.

Looking at the middle photo you are looking at the Front of the connector.
Looking at the photo to the far right, you are looking at a side shot, and the back of the connector. The back is where the wires go in.

Each wire ends in a metal terminal connector.
The metal terminal connector is shaped like a tube, so that it will slide on the pins in the mobo's ATX main power connector.

The metal terminal connector also has two locking tabs. One on each side.


Sometimes there may be a problem with the locking tabs. The metal terminal connector is not tightly on the pin. May not even touch the pin. Check each wire in the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector. Push in on each one.

Everything is fine so far?
Perform the diagnostic test to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

Use a jumper wire on the back of the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.
Touch the jumper wire from the Soft Power On wire to ANY Ground wire.

The Soft Power On wire is the Green wire.
ANY Black wire you see is a Ground wire.
(Soft Power On is also abbreviated as PS_ON)

The general type of jumper wire used is a paper clip.
Thin, and stiff, plus a conductor of electricity.
The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.

Black plastic electrical tape is wrapped around the middle of the U.
This area is for you to hold onto the jumper wire.

The 'legs' of the jumper wire, go down into the appropriate socket holes, in the BACK of the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

One leg goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire (PS_ON), and the other leg goes down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire.

The paper clip goes down into the socket hole RIGHT NEXT TO THE EXISTING WIRE that is already present.
Slides down right next to the wire, and touches the metal terminal.

The metal terminal is pretty far down in there.
Ensure that the paper clip is touching both metal terminals on the Green wire, and any Black wire.

Power supply comes on? You have a bad Power On switch,


Power supply does Not come on? You have a bad Power Supply.

im not sure what this isn't you are refering to i come from the old school of english

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

I would assume you've tried different ports and different keyboards.
If you have, I'd contact the reseller and RMA the board.
There's really nothing you can do with a board that won't go into the setup.
Just for kicks, remove the CMOS battery on the board before you email/call the reseller.

Will your system come up in safe mode? Try a shutdown and unplug the tower. Plug the tower back in and see if it will come up in safe mode. If it does, go to "control panel", find "device manager" and right click on it. Find "display adaptors" and click on box at right(has a little + inside), it should drop down your device. right click o it and you sjhould see 'enable" or "disable". If it says enable click on that ad you should be good to go. Make sure your connections between tower and monitor are good.

Have you checked in the BIOS if it's active/not disabled? If yes, have you installed its driver (along al the others)? If not , get them from

If yes, have you checked that in Device Manager the LAN connection is correctly recognized?

There is usually a jumper on the board somewhere around the battery. You have to either move that jumper to adjacent pins or remove it to clear passwords.

Okay first things first, I don't recognize what your asking, that isn't a normal name for a CPU. Looks like a factory number/ID... So, to find your actual CPU: Tap your windows key, then type dxdiag and tap enter key. That will pull up directx configuration program and that includes what CPU you have as well as most the basic hardware info. Let me know if you still need help okay.
