Ok so my graphics card is a PNY Nvidia GT 220, worked fine ever since I got it.
Today I was playing Bad Company 2 and noticed my graphics were lagging slightly, and I closed out and looked at my card temperature which was at 105 degrees Celsius, it has NEVER been this high before and I knew something was wrong so I shutdown and opened the case.
What I found out is that when the computer is on, the fan ontop of my graphics card does NOT move. When turning on it struggles to move, and just stops.
Before when I would flick the fan on the card it would easily spin, now when I flick it it moves only a little and stops. It feels as if it needs oil on it or something?
I have actually got the fan moving now, but its slowly moving, not like normal. I know this is because it is 'stuck' or something, would it need to be oiled? Or maybe the fan rotors need to be cleaned out?
Im going to hopefully take my computer in tomorrow and have them either replace the fan or oil it if you can oil a graphics card fan, but can anyone help me out and tell me what you think.
