My CPU fan was stopping on occasion, a little clean air and it would run. After a while I figured I'd better just buy a new one. After only a couple of weeks this one does the same thing. The computer runs just fine otherwise, with the excetion of it sometimes not wanting to come out of sleep mode,

I have:

AMD Duron 900
256 MB Ram
Asus A7V-E Mobo


Any help would be great.

I agree with gamerfreak, this sounds like a power issue.

Specs on your power?

Check to see if there's a BIOs upgrade for your motherboard. I had a problem with one of my board where the CPU fan wouldn't start back up after coming out of suspend or hibernation. The company that made my board came out with a BIOs update later that fixed the problem.
