Dont let him freak you out.. Just because the fan in the Power supply isnt working doens't mean you'll harm your computer.. If you have other fans in the case of the computer this wont mess anything up.
I have seen many computers that I have fixed dont have the the power supply fan spinning.. I call the user and ask them "for 5 bucks I can replace that fan" "Have you ever had spontanious rebooting"
90% of the users have never had a problem. If your PSU overheats your computer will reboot out of the blue.. You can either replace the powersupply, or you can replace the fan inside.. The fan will either be soldered to the mainboard of the PSU or it will have a plug in it..
As for the blue screen. Do you see your computer POST? If you dont and you see the blue right after you push the power button then I would enter the BIOS and see if you have "Fastboot", "quickboot" or something similier to that.
