    Graphic Card Fan not spinning


    So uh, my video card fan is not spinning. before that. I removed the video card and remove the dust and re apply the thermal paste. and because the fan is too noisy I added some machine oil on the bearing so it would be slippery. And then I insert the video card, Plugged the pc on and I played some games. I dunno if the fan is working at that time. Then I Cleaned the processor and reapply thermal paste on it. After all of that I plug everything, suddenly I notice that my graphic card fan is not working. HELP ME PLEASE

    What type of machine oil and how much did you apply? Try uninstalling the GPU driver package and reboot then reinstall it again, another reboot might be needed.

    The fan maybe fried...or you've got to much lubricant applied.

    I see. How about the lubricant? How will I remove it to become less?

    The damage is probably irreversible if the fan is fried. You may need to replace it. Those fans are replaceable. Or get a PCI slot fan instead.

    I would recommend replacing the GPU with a 5 or 6 series card. For what you'll spend on the fan and your time/labor you will be better off just getting a new card. I'm partial to AMD brand...best bang for you buck..you can order one from the $50 to $100 range. Have a look here.
