Default question

I accidently broke the fan over my cpu so i replaced it with another fan and ever since that whenever I try to turn on my computer its just a black screen and nothing will show. The fan i put on works, but i fear either my mobo or cpu chip is fried for having ran it awhile with a broken fan. Is there anyway to tell whats wrong with it?
It is an amd athlon with win xp.

(this happened like 2 months ago but I never tried figuring out why it broke)

Youve had a non fucntioning computer sit there for 2 months?

Reseat the CPU, then unattach everything except, CPU, Video card, RAM and Front Panel Connectors. Try getting it to POST. If it does not, then RMA /replace CPU.
