i have taken apart hundreds of laptops in my time, the fan on this one just needed a good cleaning out, when removing the connector from the motherboard i broke the connector from the fan, so now i just have the bare wires from the fan, and the plastic connector is destroyed, is there any hope for this other then just buying a new fan?

As long as the socket on the motherboard is OK, you'd probably do best just to buy another fan. It ought to be less than $10.
