Will replacing the chipset fan fix my motherboard post issue

I have a A8N5X motherboard and one day it froze on me I cut off and turned it back on and it didn't post. I thought at first it was my graphics card I bought a new one and it didn't work then I notice the North bridge chipset fan was loose I took it off and it was in terrible shape and the thermal paste on the chip was dried up.
So can buying a new chipset fan will fix this or is my motherboard gone

  1. All you can do is try the solution. If the chipset is cooked then you will know.
  2. will the motherboard not post with a bad chipset fan
    I would think it would still post even with a bad fan
