  1. OK so I was screwing around playing with this computer that doesn't work properly and with mine and I thought I might put my cpu fan on the other computer and see if it would work. so I take the fan off and decide I'm too lazy to bother with all that and I put it right back on my computer. Now when I try to turn on my computer the power comes on the fans go and absolutely nothing happens anyone know whats going on??

    Most likely a bad heatsink installation. Carefull remove it, clean off the thermal paste then apply a new thin layer, spread it evenly over the surface of the CPU core & reinstall the heatsink.
