My Computer Died

It's dead, Jim.

Seriously though, the processor fan died, and I think I may have fried the processor itself. Cause I got a new fan, and the fan works, but the computer don't now. So, I may be on even less than usual.

Hmm. I had a laptop, a while ago, who's fan died. The computer shut off when it detected itself getting too hot, though, and after having replaced the fan, no permanent damage seems to have come of it.

I guess not all computers have such features, though...

Depends on the processor. Intel's stand up to heat far better than AMD's do. Also it's important to have a heat plate:
