Question about Nvidia GeForce 6800 PCI Express Graphic Card
Utility partition says its getting power toall parts of my computer but the cards fan wont work all of a sudden. What can i do?? my graphics are working just fine...its literally just the fanwont work. Got it to spin a little last night but only for like 20seconds then it stopped again. Sounded like a sick engine revving alittle then dieing.Thanks!
Sounds like the fan has died (the bearings will go out, just like on a case fan). I assume you made sure the power is connected to it (usually a little cable, on Nvidia cards), so... you are left with a few options:
1) Do nothing. Make sure your case has adequate cooling, and the Graphics Card should be fine.
2) Send it back and have it repaired. Unless it is under warranty, it will probably make more sense to...
3) Just go buy a new card.
Unfortunately, even if you could get the old fan off, finding a replacement would be seriously difficult. I like option 1 the best - if the card does overheat and die, then you still have options 2 and 3.
