Cos it sounds like whatever amount of force you've put on the thing is taking its' toll.

    Lol, I hope not dude. The question wasn't literal btw. I was just asking about the amount of force you had to use to put the thing in, cos in yur initial statement you said you had to do a little pushin and shoving. - I just wanted to know what degree of pushing and shoving.

    it's got to be a mobo problem. the power for the fan runs through the motherboard. the fan should turn on with the power switch on, even though the computer doesn't have to post. mayb when you "pushed" you might have bent a capactior or maybe even esd'd the mobo. did you wear a ground strap? test your mouse, keyboard, video card, etc. with another system to see if it works. if it does then it's more than likely a mobo problem.

    That's not necessarily correct. None of my fans run through my board for power other than the CPU. All of my case fans are straight off the PSU.

    PSU-420 watts
    all case fans work but just everything else doesn't.
    i tried my old fan which supplied its power from the motherboard and it works
    so most likely i bent or broke something important on my motherboard?

    Yeah most likely. Maybe its time to upgrade the motherboard or is covered under a guarantee? Bit of a bummer really.

    From personal experience it could be 1of3 things.
    1. CPU is hot (someone pulled out the CPU fan plug after I plugged it in, I swear! :o ) easy fix, let it cool down for an hour and try again.
    2. CPU is dead. mobo good.
    This is easy, if you got a spare chip that you can test the mobo with.
    3. Mobo is dead. Sux, but ah well.
    Or combo of 3and2. mobo killed CPU.

    But you better hope that you got good dealers that are willing to exchange the stuff you bought.

    There is another option, which is the video card. If possible, try it in another computer. If that is not possible, return it and have the supplier verify if it's good or not. Resetting the CMOS may have been the culprit or some other stray electrical surge. (Static electrical discharge.)

    Obviously the CPU cooler fan is connected properly to the mobo or else the whole thing would shut down.
