I was fiddling around with another fan in my case earlier today, and the fan got something stuck in it while it was spinning and then my computer just shut off and won't turn back on. I don't think it's static damage, because it wasn't really near the board or anything. I'm just wondering if because the fan stopped, if maybe the PSU messed up or something.

Anything I can do to make sure it's the PSU and not anything else? Seems to me like that's the only thing that makes sense, but idk. I assumed it would boot back up on some power protection shutdown.

Do you have another PSU around?

Nah. Thanks though.

Not sure what it was, but after I unplugged literally everything from the motherboard and plugged it all back up, it worked fine. I'll definitely be more careful around fans now, haha.

Best solution

I bet some cable was not plugged properly. It wasn't really about the fan. Glad to hear you fixed it :)
