One thing I would never do is to plug a fan into my hard drive power source, I'm sure you can find a different one to use.
Now I'm not saying this is why it's not working but it's just not a good idea.Fabe

No, it's not that. I disconnected the fan completely and I still had the same problem. It seems like underneath where the fan sits, there's a chip that isn't being covered by the new fan, and so the display shuts off. I'm not sure why this is.

+1 on that one Fabe.

The HDD power sources should be left for drives, IMHO. Especially if you have a number of them. Sometimes fans can have changes in current draw, and with a lot of drives on the rail, you might get a droop now and then. It's not common, but it could potentially cause stability issues.
