What do you mean the processor was not running, do you mean the cpu fan?
You mentioned a "computer fan" not running witch one or were is it located?
Does this have a video card or onboard video?
Don't worry if you can't answer all of these but try as best you can.
Also try removing the wirerless pci card and see if anything appears on the screen.

the computer fan i was talking about is a fan in the back of a computer. It attaches to a tube that is directed at the motherboard.
I have onboard intel extreme graphics. I dont think that is the problem though because if it was then the green LED on the front of the computer would still turn on.

This fan in the back is it connected directly to the psu by a 4 pin connector with yellow red and black wirers?
If it is and is not running and assuming the fan is good then it seems that the 12v rail on the psu is not producing power meaning the psu is faulty.
I can tell you how to test this if the above is true and you have a volt meter.

and yes the fan is connected to the motherboard through red black and yellow wires though i think its a 3 pin not 4
Could you please tell me how to test the CPU. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Use a volt meter digital is best, touch the red lead of the volt meter to the yellow wirer and the black lead to any black wirer.
It should read 12v but can be plus or minus 5% and still be within spec
Check the red it should be 5v plus or minus 5%
Check the orange it should be 3.3v plus or minus 5%
This is a no load test but if the psu puts out the specified voltages then it should start the computer.
After you do this post back the voltages so we can have a look
