Im new to this forum but it looks like there are people here that know what they are doing so im going to post my question here.
I have just been changing some power connectors around(standard for UV) and a few other mods, my problem started when i pluged in my side fan in turned on the computer and nothing (before the fan it started) so i checked the fan connectors and i relisied that of the 2 connector 1 male 1 female, the female i put the wires the wrong way 12v was feeding into 5v and vise versa. Now both my hard drives now do not work, my combo cd/dvd does not work, but my dvd burner works and so does my cd burner. So does this mean i have lost 3 drives due to a power mess up that i have made or is there something that i am missing or can do.

thank you in advance
