First, download PC Wizard 2008 so you can check the fan speeds and temp of your CPU (and every other component of your PC if need be) and see if it's operating properly. You can find it here:
If it's malfunctioning, you'll need to replace it.

What kind of cpu cooling fan can I use in a Acer America ASE380-UD420A desktop computer?

Cooling fan to CPU are come along with the CPU. You can use any other fan, having speed regulator pin, ie, the connector wire to it will have three conductors. Keep a close look at the size and seating screws to its body to the heat-sink of the CPU.

I have a fan error on startup and pc shutdown

This might have to do with how the fan is being connected for power...if it is not connected to the motherboard and you are using some sort of controller....then you have to go into the BIOS (Setup) settings and tell it to stop monitoring the fan in question. All this is assuming that the fan in question is working!

It seems like your pc is overheatting. Open the case on your pc and check wheather the fan that is in top of your cpu is running. If it is not take it out and take it to the close computer shop and buy a new one. It is simple to replace a fan.

My Averatec 3200 keeps shutting itself down. The

A common problem with all laptop is dust. Sounds like you have 5 years worth of dust stuck in there. You should get a can of compressed air and blow though every vent you can! You want to loosen the dust that's in there and possibly try to blow it out and/or get it closest to the vents.

After that you should take a vaacum cleaner and **** out all the dust you can!

Dust inhibits air flow, alot! Its the number 1 killer of old computers.

Fan error

You mite not want to reset this. This could be telling you that your fan is faulty/Dieing. If so then if it doesn't turn off your comp, your CPU will fry from the heat. Try replaceing your CPU fan within your computer. "Cool Master" is a good brand. you can find them at any Fry's Electronics Store.
