You can attempt to fix it, but be careful as a video card is a fragile piece of electronics and can easily be damaged. Do not attempt to fix your fan unless you absolutely sure you can do what I suggest and that you understand it.

The only tools you are going to need are a can of compressed air designed to clean out dust and a bottle of "three in one" oil. These can be bought at just about any hardware store, or even big-box stores. You are also going to need a screwdriver to remove the fan assembly.

Remove the fan assembly first by removing the screws holding it in place. Then, blow your entire fan assembly clean using the air can.

After you have done that, look for the back of the fan itself. There should be a piece of tape or plastic that can be removed covering the back of the fan. Remove this, then place one to two drop of your three in one oil into the hole that the tape was covering.

Let the fan assembly sit with the hole facing up for about 30 seconds. Then, spin the fan around a few times, and let it sit for another 30 seconds. This will ensure that the oil fills in all the little spaces it needs to lubricate.

Once your fan is done sitting, replace the tape (or put a new piece of electrical tape where it used to be, especially if the old tape is a little lose when you put it back on). Put the fan assembly back onto your video card in the position it was before you moved it. Put the screws back in the holes, and screw tight.

Put the card back in your system and try it out. If the noise has stopped, congratulations, you just saved yourself $120! If not, then your fan is either lose or there is something else wrong with the card, and it's time to start saving.

Let me know how things go. If you need any further support, leave a comment in this thread and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Radeon X1650pro suddenly stopped functioning


You may have to uninstall prior drivers and re-install the most current. If you have been operating this card with Windows 7 then, it must be compatible. http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/CatalystAGPHotfix.aspx This is AMD's link for your card. If it is indeed an AGP card I would try the driver listed for your operating system. It worked with Windows 7 but the current drivers may not work. If you have upgraded your drivers in the past yourself, you may want to see if you can find the last compatible driver that worked for you and/or you may want to start over altogether if you have the installation CD. You may also want to try the Vista driver, which will sometimes wirk with Windows 7. If it's at all possible, you might want to test the card on a family or friends computer with the AGP slot. Good luck. Dave

There are pci to agp riser cards.If your going to be playing some of the latest games.Most games in the past 3 yrs require a pci x16 vid card.

I suggest geting another motherboard,chipset,and memory.Along with a Pci e x 16 card min 512mb.

Hi,

I think you have not connected power connector to your Radeon HD5570 .
This graphics card have 6pin power connector .
You need a 6pin power connector cable that comes with the graphics card box.

1.First connect your 6pin power connector to Graphics card.
2. Then connect other part of the cable to PSU.

Hope it will work for you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

The pci express slot on that computer is an option, so it may not be enabled automatically when shipped, I would suggest rebooting and go into the BIOS settings and make sure the PCI slot is enabled. Then strile F10 to save and exit, reboot and try it again.

Need new card, system requirements confusing


Radeon X800 XL is a PCI-E (PCI-Express) card, you can replace it with any current ATI or nVidia video card that uses the PCI-E slot. Since you already have a PCI-E card before, I would bet you already meet most of the system requirements.

Tried To Install New Card, monitor not responding.


Tech is suggesting that you pressed too hard while switching back & forth & may have hurt the motherboard by bending it. This a common problem. I can only suggest that remove your old card & clean the PCI slot with canned air. Carefully reseat the old card pressing evenly downwards till the card is seated. Use a flashlight & check where the card connects to the slot. It should be level across the PCI slot. Do this while the power cord is unpluged from the PC. Plug the power back in & start the PC.
Some video cards require extra power. Your newer card may need a four pin power connector to run. Please check the instructions that came with the RADEON X1300.
