Question about ASUS EN7800GTX GeForce 7800 GTX, (256 MB) Graphic Card
Without the fan your card may burn. Go to your nearby Pc junk store and get a graphic card fan of same size and voltage. To remove your fan from the card try to push the plastic pins located on the corners of the fan's body. Hope it works .Don't forget to vote me. Tell me again so i may fix your problem. Thanks

Tips for a great answer:
The main device responsible for maintaining a constant temperature of your video card is the fan present in the processor. If this isn't functioning efficiently it's quite obvious that it would result in your video card overheating. If you don't regularly clean your computer, it could be highly likely that your fan is clogged with dust.
This is one of the simplest causes of your video card overheating which can be fixed by simply cleaning your fan, preferably using a blower.
A follow up of the previous point, in some cases your fan maybe malfunctioning or stopped working altogether. This could simply be diagnosed by switching on your computer with its cover open and checking if the fan is functioning. If it doesn't happen to be working, you have your answer.
Pushing your CPU to its limits by overclocking can cause your video card to overheat. This can seem fairly obvious too as if you find your video card overheating and if you've recently overclocked your CPU, it would explain it.
This is a rare cause, but depending on your video card's brand a badly developed driver could also cause your video card to overheat. If you use an unusual video card with questionable reputation this could be the issue.
While your fan maybe perfectly in tact and working, the location of your fan also matters. If there isn't sufficient air flow to your video card it can also cause it to overheat.
Those are typically the 5 main reasons to your video card overheating. If you have any other points in your mind, feel free to share them below.
