Sometimes when I turn on the pc, the video card fan won't spin. But if u touch and spin it then well spin. I think I need to put something on it, maybe an oil or what? And I don't know what kind, what brand, or what name. My video card is NVIDIA GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS. I tried to blow the mid section of the fan but doesn't work. I need your advise to keep my fan spin always.

Do you maintain your computer well? This might be caused by accumulating dust on your fan. This is only one possibility. There might still be other possibilities.

Instead of "sort of" fixing it save yourself some problems & fix it right.
Replace the fan.

If it's an older card treat yourself to a newer card.

If it's a fairly good card buy a aftermarket cooler.

It would be almost impossible to get the oil to the spot were it would do the most good without using too much
That would create another problem
You would need a real lightweight machine oil in a needle dispenser
Example:

Depending on the fan, you can replace it if you're handy

@garmanma
The oil injecter is so expensive for me, i can't afford. Instead I can buy a new fan, but I dont know how to remove the connection between the fan and the video card so i don't know how to replace it either.

@fairjoeblue
I bought the card last december 2007, so i think not too old to replace it.
Please give me visual of that cooler because i am not familiar with that thing.

@cosmic_sniper05
Yea maybe its a dust/hair inside my video card fan but externally (i mean outside of the fan) it is clean, because i often clean it everyweek.

And one thing i notice since this year my video card gets hotter, even if the fan spin. But just the video card gets high temp, at idle the temp is around 64-66 degrees celsius and when gaming like dota, nba live and rohan online. The temp goes around 69-75 degrees celsius. Compared last year when the pc idle i got 57-60 C and on load it just 62-63 C. Is it just normal or not? We don't have airconditioned. And on daylight our weather so hot.

Thank you very much for your replies.
