About a week ago my display got dim, fiddled around with autoset on monitor some time back, damn autochipsets, so I manually set brightness up to 90%.
Helped a little, today it got worse and then the color shifted off scale, no adjustment helped.


:woot:

when I had taken the computer out of town for a couple of months it had gotten really dirty from where I had to use it, I had blown it out but I had not pulled the vid card to clean.

:inlove:

Got a flashlight turned on computer and the damn fan wasn't moving, cheap POS ati 9600GT from england, I had bought the card over 3 years ago for it's
superior chipset, small die, less heat characteristics

Got the fan pulled, cleaned the goop from chipset with lighter fluid, toothpick and q tip, got the fan off heatsink assembly, durn phillips screws were too small to even see, pulled a plastic flap up and filled the bearing well with wd40

washed the blades with q tip and water, zipped it back together after rotating fan blades and blotting up excess wd40, applied geil cu paste
crossed my fingers and held my breath


:thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet: :cool:

Congratulations on the repair. Myself, I would have been thinking along the lines of blowing it out via a trebuchet, and going for the distance record while at it :thumbsup: .

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
