Question about HP Vectra Xe320 PC Desktop
Good day sir hi, check to see if the power supply, and processor fan is working properly, does it blow hot air. Check your processor fan, make sure that the fan is connected to the proper power port. There are two types of port, the 3 terminal port, without fan temperature monitor and the 4 terminal port with temperature monitor, check if your processor fan is compatible with the 4 terminal port.
You can also disable the temperature fan thing that monitors your system fan, just go to the BIOS setup, find the hardware monitor and set you fan to disable monitor. Hope this helps.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the power-cord.
Open the side-panel, and take a look.
There should be one fan on top of the CPU (Central Processing Unit) -- the "CPU fan".
There should be one more fan,
probably screwed to the inside of the back panel.
Check that the 3 wires leading from the fan are connected somewhere on the motherboard, i.e., not hanging loosely.
Two of the wires bring electricity to the fan,
and the third wire reports the speed of the fan.
By hand, try to "spin" the fan-blades -- if it does not spin freely, your fan has "seized", and needs to be replaced, because the "speed" of the fan has been reported as 'zero'.

SOURCE: the system fan is missing
If you're referring to the fan on the CPU , and it does not run when you turn on the computer , yes replace it. The system is protecting the CPU from overheating . If you're not sure if the fan is bad , remove the computer access cover to the main board , then , turn the computer on and see if the CPU fan starts to spin. If you notice the fan blades vibrating or jiggling but not spinning , then replace the fan motor assembly .
