NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 fan stopped

The fan is probably stuck possibly because of dust or the fan is broken, you can purchase a cheap heatsink / fan from a retailer, or actually it may be easier and cheaper to just purchase a new videocard, they cost a little bit more than a fan. If you don't need anything better than a GT240.

you may just have to add a fan and or heatsink if it were a may have to jury rig it in case there are no fan mounts on the board
it could also be the type/style case you have is not adequate....perhaps adding a fan [ one to **** out the heat near the top and the other to draw in air near the bottom ] may just solve the excess heat issue without mucking up around the video card

There is problem on my graphic card. It is over heating because of it's fan. I buy a new termal paste and oiled the fan but it is still over heats and shuts down itself. sometimes it flows air v

If the fan is operating and the heatsink is in contact with the chip and it is still overheating then there is a bigger problem than just cooling. You could try a PCI slot fan and mount it next to your graphics card. But I can't see this making enough of a difference to a graphics card as old as yours. If you aren't playing games then just try removing the graphics card and using the onboard graphics port.

Cooling fan broken spares?

Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

The cooling fan solution in this case needs to be replaced with an after market Graphics Card cooler. One that fits this GeForce 9400GT.

That's the heatsink and the fan!

Thanking you kindly

Fan seems to vibrate periodically then return to quiet for some time. Does it require replacement? Unit is 12 months old. John Meersman

no,if is vibrating does it mean that is something wrong maybe is not fixed proper or the load of program is too much for it,check if is proper fix first.

Does the video card have a cooling fan on it or a passive heatsink? If it has a fan then make sure it is working when the computer is on. If it does not have a fan you could try installing a small fan on the heatsink to help cool it. Is your powersupply rated high enough to work on that video card? High end video cards are very power hungry and might be taxing your current power supply. If the voltage drops it could cause the video card display to shut off...especially when playing video games at high res. Verify that the video card is properly seated into the slot and you may also want to try and remove the card, clean the contacts, and the re-insert the card. And if you are using software to overclock the card or if you computer multiplier/FSB has been raised then this can raise the clock speed of the agp/pci-express port and cause video problems. Also verify that the agp/pci-express voltage is adjusted to what the video card requires.

Noisy graphics card

If the fan is really loud and the card or the computer is out of warranty, replace the fan or the whole heatsink on the video card.
