Noisy computer or maybe fan

Morning all this morning I switched my computer on to be greeted with a very load noise my first thought was that it might be the fan, upon inspection I noticed a lot of dust had built up so this was quickly cleaned.

I then tried starting again only to be greeted with the same noise so this time I took out the fan to give it a good claen as there was quite a lot of dust.

after putting the fan back into computer it will not start, so my question is will the computer switch on if the fan is broken or could it be something else altogther.

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Maybe do a sfc /scannow in command prompt to see if it finds any problems, and check device manager for any yellow exclamation marks.
