Sounds like a dead MOBO or PSU(Battery)
How old is the system?
Is it still under warranty?

Hi There

If the mobo was dead would the lights come on? ie power LED, caps LED, numlock LED etc. And if the battery was dead it would still work from the mains.

By replacing you mean a new fan?
If still not running then you may have a bad MOBO
Yes even if MOBO is bad there led's may still work as it takes very little power to have them start.

The other option is that depending on how long the fan was out the CPU may have been damaged.

Again how old is the system and any warranty?
