When I started the pc, This message appeared: "Chip-fan failed or is too slow"

I kept on using the pc but after some time, the display started to flash on and off repeatedly. When rebooting, it would flash again after 5 min.

I tried to restart the pc and there was lots of garbage, strange signs and colored pixels. then there was this message:
out of range
HF: 30 - 95 KHz
VF: 47 - 160 Hz
27,9 KHz 53 Hz

start up does not work, it keeps rebooting automatically and there is the same garbage display again. The monitor is still ok, tested on another pc.
What does this mean?

Could be that the fan of the video card is faulty or the fan on the chipset heatsink (if there is such fan). Open the box and see if all the fans are spinning freely, including the one that cools the CPU.

GPU is high. CPU quite high (depending on model and load). I would check, first of all, what happens inside the case.

Ok I checked the motherboard, I'm not sure that it was the motherboard but it's a yellow board, which has a small grey fan on it that does not spin when I turn on the pc. On the fan it says: Asus. Also, when I connect power to the pc, I notice a very high tone sound, even when the pc is turned off. When I pull out the power cable, the sound stops.

If the card a vertical to the the case's side, sits in a slot and attached with a single screw then this is the video card. Take it out carefully clean the fan and contacts and replace it. If the fan still doesn't spin then replace it with a new one. Hopefully the card was not damaged. If it was, you must replace it.

If you buy a new card buy one that has no fan on it, just a large metal cooling plate. These little fans are the most miserable electromechanical components that ever went into a computer.
