Should be screws on the back of tower to take the whole top off or screws down left side back to take the left side off.If one side can come off after screws are taken out you will slide side back to remove.

HP 873N CPU fan error


Yes, It is possible to be a board problem much more likely to be a dust /dirt problem. I have not found anywhere to purchase the CPU fans by themselves.Would obve to be wrong on this one; seems that they are sold along with the heatsinks. My favorate is : Newegg. com  but another is: Tiger.com

All you will need to know is your CPU  socket number. You can look that up in tghe manual:
I provided a link to the HP manual for you computer below. I beleive,once opened , you wil see the dust and dirt which may have caused a failer of the CPU fan. Filters are available for the same websites as the fan/heatsinks.
