Yes, the fan doesn't use much power compared to the PC. I would try that
first. Better if you had a spare to try before buying a new one.

My son's desktop PC (built by a local shop a couple of years ago) started
acting up Friday night. Most of the time it won't come on at all, once in
while it will boot up. When it _doesn't_ come on, nothing comes on.
Nothing on the display, no hard drive light, no power light.

My first thought was power supply, but even when nothing else comes on, the
fan in the power supply runs.

Have you ever heard of that? Power supply goes, but the fan still runs?
