I've replaced it but now the fan on my video card has stopped working. Monitor displays "Cable Not Connected" message, so I'm assuming either it's overheated and I need to replace the fan or the card is completely fried / dead and I need a new one. (Really hoping it's the former...)
Is there any way to tell if the card is dead or just needs a new fan (aside from buying a new fan and trying it out. Don't want to waste the money and time)
It was an expensive card and if it's possible to save it, I will be forever happy...
If replacing the fan is an option, I've googled like crazy and can't really find the specs to the card fan or a stock replacement.
Do I just need to take it out and measure it, then purchase a fan with the same measurements or what?
I built this PC myself (with some help from a friend) and am just enrolled in school for CIT but I'm not all that knowledgeable about this sorta stuff....yet
The Card - ASUS ENGTX460 DirectCU TOP/2DI/768MD5 GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card;
It's only about a year and a half old btw...
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
