Answers :

Hi I am Vortash and slightly confused do you mean the metal housing holding the power supply are there wires approx 12 of them coming out of the same box the fan is in ? if so you are talking about the power supply cooling fan and it would be cheaper and easier to just buy a new power supply as by the time you pay an engineer to take it out and replace it you could have purchased one for half the price .. Not too sure if this is ? the fan you mean but hope this helps ... Regards Vortash
You don't change the fan. That is the power supply. That should be the box that the power cord runs into on the back. You may want to find a qualified pc repair technician in your area. I would recommend geek squad but their prices are high. You can pick up a replacement online for about 30$.
