My dumb butt wasn't looking and the other end of the usbc plug touched the metal part of my usb port on my pc. It turned off instantly. I naturally tried unplugging and plugging back in. Didn't work; fans came on for less than a second and didnt spin and stopped. I tried taking out the mobo battery for a minute and resetting cmos and plugged back in. My fans lit up for a split second but didn't do anything and shutoff. I am wondering if I fried the board or the psu? Or what should I do? I feel stupid.

Best guess is the motherboard got shorted and you need another one. Only way to find out, though, is to swap the motherboard.
That makes sense. I had some friends say similar. Ughh, might as well do a cpu upgrade while I am at it too since it has been a while. Thanks though!
