I was trying to install a fan controller. I plugged everything in an turned it on and I saw a tiny bit of smoke come from the controller, so I turned the comp off.
I unplugged the fan controller, and turned my comp back on. Boots, no screen, so I go to shake my mouse, and see that it isn't working. I tried a mouse that uses the green port and tried switching USB ports. What could have happened?
The computer seems to be working other than the monitor/mouse thing.

Update: I took my RAM sticks out and the continual obnoxious beeping occured. This is good news, I guess. I'm hoping its just a problem with my back panel or something. I reseated all the cables and nothing going :/

How do I do that? And beeps, I get a post beep, but nothing after that.

Oh, and yes I tried 3 different mouses. Haven't tried another monitor but I'll do that now.

Ahhh thank you. The second monitor worked! Just gotta find whats wrong with the first one. The mouse is working now, too. Can anyone see to why the mouses work with this monitor and not the last one? It can't be PSU, I unplugged all my extra fans and cathodes. Thanks for the help.
