Specs: windows vista
To start this is a friend's computer. Never cleans it and the exterior fans were filled with dust and the computer started to sound like it was going to take off. Very loud winding noise would come and go. well the screen went black with a disk boot error. I took it home cleaned the dust out of it (interior fan completely blocked) and put the system disk in that it asked for. Now it goes to a new error which is cpu fan error, can this be fixed or replaced and can I do it?

If you're familiar with the insides of a machine, then yes:

Just make sure you get the correct fan for the CPU in the machine, since they can vary from one type of CPU to another.

If you're successful at replacing it, then I'd strongly recommend to your friend that he/she take better care of the machine, and never sit it near the floor---where it can become an expensive vacuum...
