I build a computer recently, I have a Ryzen 7 and at some point my CPU fan died. I didn't notice until I tried to boot my computer later and I would only have a blank screen. When I turned it on I heard the hard drives and all the fans in my tower boot up and the LEDs in my ram/motherboard start up like normal but still only a blank screen. Did I fry my CPU? or is it not booting up because there is no fan. The CPU itself doesn't smell burnt nor does it have any marks or blemishes on it, looks fine on the outside.

buy a new cpu cooler and try to boot it up. overheating may cause the cpu to not work at all
