Hey folks...so my computer has been "broken" for a few weeks now and I'm starting to think it's the motherboard. For a couple weeks I would get an error message before I started up my computer saying they're might be a problem with a Chip fan...I didn't really know which fan it was implying and didn't think much of it, because when/if I pressed f1 and exited that troubleshooter, it would just boot up like always/normal. After a while my computer had trouble starting up and would only start up every once in a while after so many tries. Now when I try to turn it on, you hear the typical sound of a mini turbine engine starting up, and when it's about to peak and start up the mobo or the whole system, you hear a "bzz" and it doesn't start it up....all the fans spin, all the LED lights are on....the whole thing gets power...the psu is good (and brand new because I thought that was the problem)..but the little chip fan on the mobo doesn't spin....is my mobo broken?

Try a different video-card -- a "no-spin" fan and "no-video" implies a dead video-card (or at least a video-card that is not "seated' properly).
Check that the PC-speaker leads are connected to the motherboard, so that you could hear any "beep" codes. There should be one "beep" to indicate 'OK', or multiple "beeps" (bad RAM, no video-card detected).
You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.
Firt remove the covering of the cabinet then locate a battery take it out rub it for few seconds.Place it back the way it was.Now if you have another cpu fan port on the mother board then plug your cpufans cable to it.Now restart your computer start pressing F2 ie bios settings.Now check the time and date. restart it again. See if it fixes the problem.
It sounds like a motherboard sound chip failure, although run a diagnostics on the sound, click Start>run, then type 'dxdiag', hit 'Enter' and run sound driver test.
If it has failed, you can purchase a cheap PCI slot souncard and dissable your onboard sound, or a complete new motherboard.
