Im having a problem with my gaming pc

One of my fans wasnt spinning as well as the others so i wanted to take it out to see what was wrong. It was harder than i thought. I accidentally unplugged something in the back thinking it was the fan, and I also unplugged everything that was connected to where the power switch goes. But something went really bad because when i turn it on, only about half the fans work. Can you help?

Nice to meet you, *****!
Usually, fans are connected via these pins

Could you check if your other fans are connected?

I think I only see one at the top of the motherboard, is there a certain spot I could find them? And is it possible for them to be in the back?

I remember that 2 spots are above your CPU and 1 must be on the left side of your CPU. How many fans do you have?
Customer Reply
I have 2 on the top, 1 to the left of the cpu, and another to the right of the motherboard
so 4

By the way, do you see where is your CPU Fan connected? There is another connector, you can connect your second Fan at the top to it

I sent 2, 1 of it more close up, and one backed up a little so you can see whats around it.
