The fan should have a three wire connector which is attached to the motherboard, it sounds like it was loose and you have re-seated it. If the fan isn't running and the CPU reaches a preset temperature the computer will shut itself down to protect the CPU.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

As long as the rest of the system is working, then it's safe to assume it's not the power supply.
