Hope someone can help me.Took my computer apart to remove a noisy fan. Replaced it. Restarted it.Got a blue screen stating that Windows was shutting down due to an error.I noticed that the power cord to the hard drive came loose during the reboot.Replugged it.Now computer won't start at all. Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you...

Hello :welcome: To BleepingComputer! 

 

What are the specs of the machine? (ex: model name, manufacture). When you say it won't start do you mean nothing will show up on the screen or it won't boot into windows? Do you remember the stop code the bsod reported?

Computerxpds: thanks for replying. I had the computer built three years ago.Don't know any specifics. Worked fine until the noisey fan today.There is nothing running in the computer except a small green light(power?) on the motherboard...

So none of the fans are running and its not making any noise just a green light is on? I would go back in and make sure everything is connected. When you plugged the one back in to the hard drive was the computer still on and plugged in?

Try unplugging the computer from the wall for a few minuets and then plug it back in and try to start it. (educated shot in the dark). If that doesn't work I would expect that you may have killed something else such as your psu or motherboard.

Thank you. I tried that also.  No luck. Power unit or mother board got fried is my guess also. Can't believe they're that fragile.  Hopefully the hard drive survived..
