i moved my pc when it was switched on.

the power cable came loose and sparked.

the pc trys to start up and there is a NO SIGNAL message on the screen then after a while it shuts down.

i opened the cover and there are 2 fans running but the one on the mother board isn,t running.

Hello RhondaBoy

Welcome to Free PC Help

Can you tell me if the fan on both the CPU (Processor) and the PSU (Power Supply Unit) are not working?


Ok, make sure it is properly connected to the board and make sure there is no fluff or dust lodged in it.

If it still wont work then it's time for a new fan.
