the processor fan was not attached it was laying in the case and unplugged from motherboard and the heat sink was attached to the fan not the processor i reinstalled it and plugged it in but all i got after that was a black screen, is the processor fried now? is the mother board fried? also when i tried to start the cpu the first time i might have smelled an electric short of something.

the mother board is an asus a7n8x-vm400 with a 462 socket
the processor is amd athlon xp 2800+ barton core processor

is there a way to test the processor or the motherboard?

OOOooooo, go back to the person (or place) and tell them that the computer they sold you had a faulty hsf (as it fell off) and you want a full refund or new processer. Yes, most likly the processer died. a fully functional hsf is the only thing keeping the processer from overheating.
