I would also check the thing for damage just in case, there have been a few known instances where geek squad have actually done the damage themselves. or if you take a computer in and then they sell you another they cut the cables in the old one etc.
Even with the fan out the systems usually will turn themselves off before they do themselves damage, I would check all the jumpers, reset the bios and reseat the HSF, then try it out with only one stick of memory and a different power supply if you have one.
Getting a new 478 motherboard might be tough they have been out of production a long time now, I haven't seen a decent one for sale in at least a year. You will probably be stuck with whatever you can actually find rather than something particularly good.

eMachines machines tend to die after three years anyway due to the power supply so the clogging of the fan may have been co-incidental.
