trying to diagnose problem, long distance

anyone know if a heatsink fan will spin on a machine with a bad/dead mobo but working power supply? I know the power is, obviously, supplied via the motherboard but if the chipset or something else went bad on an otherwise good mobo will power pass through? tia.

just happened to my daughter's old rig. it would stay lit for a moment, then shut down, if i removed the gpu, it would run, ie fans, etc. would be going. i went through the motions, and nada. bad chipset. tried 3 different psus, two known working gpus. they all had the same results.
