Default no power

well i killed it.
i installed a new fan with the computer running. the old fan was hard wired into a connector so I just cut the wires between the fan & the connector. the computer stopped and won't restart. i think maybe cutting the wires caused a short that caused the power supply to shut down. is there a reset on these things?

Gees!!! Why would you cut a LIVE WIRE!!!

Common sense is a pretty big factor when working with computers...let alone mutilating them!!

Fine fine. He doesn't have to nix himself for being a moron. He can just...oh...go live on a little island in the north pacific by himself.

I think he should apply for a Darwin Award Runner-Up, as he potentially could have electricuted himself. Even though the fan wires are harmless (to people)...that's usually how these Darwin-Award people start out, then later wind up dead.

well now, let's see. 8 replies, including 6 insults. Is that what this forum is about?
Thank you MicroBell for the only reply that was in any way useful.
