    I did something stupid and now my PC wont turn on at all. I plugged one of my case fans into a case fan port on the motherboard while my PC was on. It immediately shut off. I tried to turn it back on after unplugging the fan and it turned on but smoke came from the case fan port. I immediately shut it off. I tried to turn it back on again and it hasn't worked since. I have verified that the PSU works and is not the issue but I am afraid it is the motherboard. I have tried unplugging everything except the PSU 24 pin connector and the CPU power and fan and tried to jump it with a screwdriver. Nothing happened. Any suggestions?

    Take it to a computer shop. They can verify if the mobo is dead or not.

    Did you read the manual right, is that really the case fan port ?

    Yes it is the fan port. I remembered I bought a protection plan for the motherboard so hopefully I will be able to get a replacement.
