Its possible the fan is not properly secured with cooling paste. Basically the system turns on but no video, as the system protects from overheating. I solved this problem once by simply removing and reseating the cooler.
Power supplies are designed to be plugged into AC so it is unlikely you have caused any damage. As far as the fan is concerned, just because it is not spinning does not mean it does not work. There may be a thermal switch to turn it on at a certain temperature. Nearly all modern PSUs will not operate unless connected properly because they need a signal from ...
It's pretty unlikely you damaged anything. Without CPU most motherboards don't give the PSU the green-light to startup anyway, so only the standby power was applied, which is very little. I have attempted to boot motherboards with a missing or badly seated CPU a number of times. Never had any damage because of it unless there was an actual short-circuit ...
Your CPU MODEL SHOWS i5 6200 which is actually the 6th generation i5 cpu. It has 15w TDP. No need to worry. BTW congratulations you have a brand new Laptop.
The computer will never say "6th generation" The computer will say, as yours does, a processor model, e.g. i5-6200 Then you have to look on the intel site, or wikipedia, to see where that model falls in terms of processor generation. http://ark.intel.com/products/family/88393/6th-Generation-Intel-Core-i5-Processors https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
Intel has a page that lists their 6th Generation Core i5 processors: http://ark.intel.com/products/family/88393/6th-Generation-Intel-Core-i5-Processors Your processor is listed there, so it is indeed a 6th-generation processor. Note that the i5-6200 is just an abbreviation for the i5-6200U there is no listed of the "i5-6200" (without the U) on Intel's ...
