Good afternoon, everyone! I want to start by saying that I've used the forums extensively in the past and have found quite a bit of help with problems that I was experiencing, so I want to thank you all for that. This is my first thread and post that I've ever had to list, and I hope that I'm following proper forum procedure by listing it here.
To get into the issue I'm experiencing, I recently purchased a computer from a third party and everything was working perfectly once I had it all set up. I made a mistake by disconnecting my hard drives to connect others in an attempt at seeing if anything was worth recovering from my old computer, and I feel that might be where everything began. To remove the hard drives, I had to disconnect my chassis fan that is on the side of my tower, and after trying to reconnect everything, including the original drives, the fan no longer works and whenever I try to connect or disconnect the fan, I receive an error when booting the PC that requires I correct the boot order for my hard drives in my BIOS settings and even set the date and time, as its all reset.
I apologize for my vague explanation of the error, and I am willing to get whatever information is needed and list it here in an attempt at possibly correcting this issue. I would just need to know what exactly is required in regards of hardware to try troubleshooting this problem. Thank you for all of your help and patience.
