Hello all,

I'm fixing someone's computer - their video card fan is kind of dead. When I opened up the case the fan wasn't spinning. After removing the video card and playing w/ the fan a little, I got it to spin, but it doesn't spin very fast. I'm thinking there's probably dust gumming up the fan's bearings. If I were to replace the heatsink/fan, are aftermarket ones the same size (mounting holes, etc), or do I need to look for one that's specific to my card?

Also, is this even worth pursuing, or should I just get a replacement video card (it's PCI-E, so not that old, but I don't remember the specific model)?
