Default Pc turns on and then off,broken cpu fan

Hey! I don't know much about pc's and general so I need ur help.Today I opened my pc and it turned on and off after a few seconds.I checked for loose cables and then I remembered that the last time it did this was when cpu was overheating so I took off the fan, apply thermal paste and then trying to close it I accidentally broke the thing that carrys the push pins/clips.leaving me with 2 problems : 1. Pc stays on for 5 min then it shuts itself and restarts and then again happens the same process 2. A broken fan

My questions:
Should I buy a cheap fan (10) for example (Xilence XC030) or it needs smth specific

What do I do about my pc's problem

If your heatsink isn't making contact with the processor then you need to keep it off until you get a replacement.

What heatsink you get depends entirely on your current setup. We will need specs to tell you if something will work or not.
