I think that particular model has the fan mounted in the back of the case just below the power supply. It has a duct that goes from the fan to the processsor. Remove case cover and remove the duct by pressing the 2 tabs on the top of the duct and rolling it back and out. Unplug the fan cable from the mainboard . Make sure you remember the connector as you will have to plug the new fan cable back in. Remove the screws that hold the fan to the case and remove the old fan. Install the new fan, plug in the cable and if your computer is dusty on the inside blow it out with some canned air . Re-install duct by sliding tab at bottom in first then pull up to lock in top tabs. Replace case cover and she's done.

If the fan is dirty you can try to clean it if you have cleaned it and it still doesn't work you can get another fan but you will need to know the model number of the CPU. You need to make sure you get a fan that is rated for that CPU or better other wise you can have overheating problems and you can burn out the CPU if run it like that for too long. The new fan should have a guide on how to replace the fan seeing not all chip sockets are the same so trying to describe how to remove the fan in 1 system is not the same in another.
You need to open the case and watch the CPU fan. If the fan is not spinning or is spinning slowly it will need to be replaced. Take the computer into your local computer repair shop so they know which processor fan you have for a suitable replacement.
You may notice a large amount of dirt and dust build-up around the heat sink and fan. You can either buy a can of compressed air and give it a blast or take it to your local garage and use an air hose or tyre inflater to blast the dirt and dust from the entire case.
(CPU fan error, system halted). This is a safety feature so as not to fry the CPU.
Odds are the that the CPU fan either real dirty or the fan is going bad which means you'll need to replace the heat sink assembly.
You can buy an OEM CPU heat-sink assembly, see below. http://www.xpcgear.com/in3.html
See page 1-11 to 1-12 in your manual.
CPU Intel socket 775 (removing). See video below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PyU00K1sKw

Take your time this is not something you rush through.
The fan is attached to the heat-sink and can be removed/unscrewed off the heatsink. Take the fan to the computer or elecronics hobby shop for a replacement fan.
The are after-market CPU heat-sink fan assemblies available (these usually provide better cooling than the original units), just remove the existing assembly and take it to your friendly computer shop for a suitable replacement.
That's what usually breaks if you have a 478 pin cpu. Should be available in any computer shop. If the actual metal bracket on the heatsink broke you will have to buy a new fan/heatsink. Both solutions are cheap.
the fan could simply be clogged and is held stil, or it needs to be lubricated, remove the fan, on the rear there will be a sticker covering a small hole, carefully peel back sticker, dont take it off, it stops dust geting in there, under that sticker will be the bearings, spray a small amount of a general lubricant or oil in there, and turn it with your hand until it is free and easy, mount it back on heatsink and it should work, failing that try a new fan
