VGA chipset fan dead
Posted on 2002-07-24
Recently, I got my hands on a used creative labs geforce 256 based agp video card. The card works fine in my system, except that there are a few display errors such as everything is darker than normal, no matter how many times I adjust the contrast.
Anyhow, I've noticed that the fan on the video card chipset is dead. Now, I don't know if the fan is dead, or if the part on the video card that supplies power to the fan is busted or whatnot.
If I need to change the fan, what is a good replacement fan to get? Futhermore, how do I take the old heatsink fan off the GPU. It looks like it is glued on real tight.
