Hey guys....
i'm new here so pardon some 'noob-ness' :thumbsup:
anyway,i have a pretty old computer system with a 6600 graphic card..can't afford a new system anytime soon....lol
anyway,had no prbs until few months ago my graphic card went to around 70-100 degrees celcius...opened the case and found out the fan was not moving...restarted the comp but the fan was still dead..so i took out the card n checked it out n took out the fan n cleaned it alil...put it all together again and it worked...but once i switched it off n on again,the fan went dead...tried the same method but to no avail...sometimes though,the fan stuttered alil...bt never recovered...been thinkin of buyin a new card,but rejected that idea n instead wait for a new system since the current motherboard is YEARS old lol....

sucks man,cant play any games at all...my music... :trumpet:
is there a way to repair it on my own?or replace the fan?
or get another card capatible to my old motherboard?

thx guys for any help :flowers:

Honestly, I'd just grab a new card. Not too expensive as long as you aren't playing any games that are new.

Depending on how handy you are you might be able to find a replacement
I'd give you a couple of links, but I don't know your location

Posting a pic of the card would be a big help
