Start the system without the side panel. Now do u see cpu heatsink fan spinning? Do u get any cpu fan error in post or bios? Remove the fan and clean it and make sure it is connected to the motherboard.

If it still does not work, measure the width and thickness in cm and look at how many pins (3 or 4) on the connector, and look for a replacement (Tigerdirect, Newegg, Ebay) or bring the old one into a local computer store. [Note, there is not reason to unmount the heat sink from the CPU/MB in order to remove most fans on stock heat sinks.]

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
