PC Fan is dislodged and I do not know how to refix it to motherboard

Hello,

The fan in my computer had become unattached/dislodged from the motherboard and I need fix it down to the motherboard. I am not sure how to do this and was wondering if someone could help me. When I start my PC I have to press F1 to boot it into windows and the PC does not want to start with the fan not working properly.

How this happened: The PC was dropped during a move and the fan became detached from the motherboard. It has been since just sitting on its own, and I'm not even sure if it is working properly.

I have attached photographs to assist this query:

If anyone could explain how to attach the fan, that would be great.

Also since the PC has been dropped my wireless internet has been quite unreliable, I'm not sure if this is related. It still works when used with an ethernet cable.

Thanks,

Richard

I took out the graphics card and the PC is now working again? How much does it cost to repair a graphics card? Or should i just buy a new one?
