  1. Guys, I need some help, power went off last night and when I went to start up pc it wouldn't Come one. It said the cooling fan wouldn't start up so the computer couldn't start up. I am getting ready to take it apart and see what is going on. Any tips as to how to proceed? 

    Where in the wide world of sports would I buy a cooling fan locally? Am I likely to be biting off more than I can chew or do I need to take it to a repair shop? 

    Any hints/tips will be apreciated.

      Is the new fan turning?

      Are you getting an error message even though it now turns freely or does it still stick?

      Did the fan come with its own set of instructions  for installation ?

      The fan turns freely, it doesn't seem to be getting power, all I get is the error message the cpu fan is not working. No instructions with the fan but it is identical to the old fan.

      Is this thread at all relevant?
