I cleaned my pc's fan and now the fan doesn't work

Hi everyone. I know nothing about computers but I decided, foolishly, to clean up the dust of my pc (Soneview Sv-psu Ax200w), so I blowed it and brushed the inside with a toothbrush. My computer only has one little fan, so I disconected the four pin connector in order to make a more confortable cleaning. I disconected all the other connectors as well in order to blow them to get rid of any trace of dust.

Then I connected all the cables and when I turned on the PC, everything went well, except for the fan wich wasn't working. I thought that maybe I had connected the fan's cable in te wrong side, so I used the other two connectors avaliables, but nothing happened.

I haven't read this problem in any forum, so i was wondering if there's anybody who could help me with this dumb problem.

Soneview Sv-psu Ax200w is just the name of the power supply unit not the PC. have a look in your user manual for the motherboard (you should have had it supplied with the PC thi s will show you where the connections should go.
