Hello community,

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1054910

^ is my set up. The tower I use is a thermaltake armor+mx med tower. So I opened up my tower to do some dusting and I accidentally dropped the tower door and the wires that power the tower door fan was ripped off. There was a red and black wire that has these weird looking prongs on them. I first did not know where they went... So I just looked at the 4 pin whole plugs and started to stick these two in these plugs to test... First few times I did this; the pc restarted and there was a spark....(could this be y my background no longer works?)
Then I found two holes out of the four pinned plugs that powered my fan.. Hurray I thought cause the fan was powered, the blue light was on and I was happy for that moment.

Then I realized my background was just a blank color.. So I right clicked/personalize/desktop background/ set up the photos I saved/hit save changes... and nothing.. no background...

Then i tried to restore and it does not allow me. Says my antivirus is on not allowing me to restore my pc properly. I turned it off but it still says this.(using avg).

Please help someone... I can not figure this out. I searched the web for answers but I have no solution in my searches... So I am asking the community for help.

Thanks for the time,
bomber

Right-click the TranscodedWallpaper.jpg file, and then click Rename.
Change the file name to TranscodedWallpaper.old, and then click Yes when you are prompted.
