    Yes, I agree with Wiggo, get attach another fan and see if it works, if it does then get a new fan.

    If you want to know for sure disconnect your fan from the motherboard and locate a spare plug from the power wiring to your drives. If you don't have a spare unplug the CDROM or something. Run a jumper from black on the fan to black on the power bundle, and from red on the fan to YELLOW (+12 volts) on the power bundle. If the fan doesn't spin its a bad fan. If you aren't comfortable with doing this (if you think you'll blow up your power supply or MB - unlikely but possible) just buy another fan. In general, they're cheap.

    If it is the MB connection, you don't need a new MB - just tap the fan into the power bundle directly and let it run full bore all the time.
