Hello,

I added a case cooling fan to my fanless GPU, it is a 3-pin fan connected to the AsRock P45DE3 chassis fan head,and since then my PC became very slow and unresponsive ,I even can't install the Win OS.

I removed the fan and unplugged it,but the PC is still too slow and unresponsive.

Is there a possibilty I have damaged some hardware component,maybe the mobo?
One screw fell on the mobo when I was mounting the GPU on the mobo.

Please help me

It is doubtful that a attached fan could damage your motherboard.
It is doubtful that dropping a screw on the motherboard would have caused damage.
(I assume the pc was powered off and that the screw was removed)
What was the make/model of the fan?
If it was a very high amperage fan, then yes you could have overloaded the capability of the motherboard fan header. It is hard to imagine this excepting for a very high powered fan.
