All.
I replaced my PSU yesterday. System is an Intel p4/HT with Intel MB. New power supply is an ANTEC NEO 480. System worked fine prior to change out. I replaced the PSU since I didn't like the generic lower power one that came with the PC. everything went very well, BUT I made an error. I accidentally plugged the CPU fan into the rear chassis fan control plug. Upon initial power up everything ran for about 1 minute (including fan) then it all shut down. now when i power up everything seem to power up fne (chassis fans, peripherals, MB pwer status light), but the CPU fan no longer runs (i plugged it into the correct plug) and the PC won't boot (no monitor lights). did I fry something?

Thanks, I guess it makes sense, no fan so the unit protects itself by refusing to operate.
I appreciate the help.
