I have a pavilion 7975 2Ghz.
I bought a 90mm fan to cool my ati radeon 9700 but it has a 3-pin plug and as far as I can see I only have three 3-pin connectors and there all in use already.
So my question is does the pavilion 7975 have a spare 3-pin plug or a 4-pin plug so I only have to buy a 3-pin to 4-pin cable?
I would really appreciate a reply.

is quite special. If you do not see any spare 3-pin plug, chances are that there aren't any. Getting a doubler could do, but I'm not sure tahts it is generally specaking a good idea...

I know what motherboard I have its this one:
But the 3-pins are so small I can hardly see them on the picture.
I read that if u use a doubler only one cooler will get the full voltage and I don t want my case cooler to get a lower voltage. Is this true?
Could I use a 3-pin ADAPTER for it? I have seen them on the internet but they are used for laptops or something maybe its something different.
What about the 4-pin connector do u think I have one on my motherboard?
I realy hope so my case is getting to hot in games like unreal2 2003 and I have not overclocked anything.

So your calculation has to be 'which device can I give less voltage with no risk', if no device, then no solution I'm afraid.
3-pin ADAPTER to connect to main fan won't work, as you say it's used toi double main fan power for laptops with 2 case fans.
Last bad news, your 4 pin plug should already be used (most of the time for your video card).
I'm afraid there is no easy solution...
