as i was on my Custom regularly,suddenly both my Mouse (razr deatheadder black) and my Keyboard (microsoft wireless) failed to work,They dont even work in BIOS,
My case fan had failed about a week ago(am looking for advice showing how to make sure the case fan is propperly connected to PSU and MotherBoard),might there be a connection.

Is there a way to get my Mouse and keyboard to work again ?,Is there a way of trying to clean and restart the case fan and keep it alive ?

You need to isolate your problem(s) by replacing the mouse & keyboard with known good ones. You can do the same with the fan but you can also simply apply the proper voltage to it if you're able. Doing this will tell you if the problem(s) are with the components or elsewhere in your computer such as the MB or PSU. BTW, salvaging fans is not cost effective.

If I'm understanding you correctly the keyboard and mouse that quit working on your desktop computer DO function on your laptop. If this is correct you have a problem inside your desktop computer. My guess would be either the MB or the PSU. There's really no way for you to troubleshoot those components except to replace them with known good components. Start with the PSU if possible. You can always take the computer to a repair facility and they will replace components to test them for you and for a price, of course.
