few weeks ogo noticed the power button on my tower turning off & on dont know how long it was doing this, but i had to unplug it to get it to stay off later when i powered it up, it was crashed, lost everything. could not do safe mode it said winsys 32 file missing or corrupt. Iran the system restore disk & f disk. took several tries to get all the way through install, finally had to take the side panel off and run a house fan on it and finally got it done. removed cleaned repasted processor. it ran fine but fan stayed in low all the time only kicked into high for about 2 secs when turn power on. week or so later it logs off about cople mins after startup. if you think its the cpu fan i cant find the exact one i have. cooler master lga775 socket for p4 3.20 ghz. please chat if you can help right now.

Hello Himmy sorry for the delay in getting to your post. You can find a suitable replacement for your CPU cooler At Newegg.com. I would recommend This fan its relatively inexpensive and should fit without any headaches. Also did you use new thermal paste when you re-installed the old Heatsink and fan? If you didn't I would try that before buying a new unit.
