Is it normal for a gpu fan to first start when you power the pc on then cut off after a few minutes?
It's a geforce fx 5600

I am pretty sure that when you turn on the computer the gpu fan should be always spinning.

Before you worry about it too much, download GPUZ and see how hot it is.

It's not hot because I have a gpu temp monitor running all the time but I still want to know if it will kick on if it does get hot or is the fan not working or getting enough power to run?

Then chances are your fan is fine. The drivers control fan speeds based on the GPU temp. While in BIOS, the fan is controlled by the card itself, in windows the drivers control fan speed. I just don't think you have a problem.

If you want the GPU fan to be always running when you on windows then you can adjust the settings.

Where would the settings be? The nvidia control panel just has visual settings, I see nothing about a fan or it's speeds

There is a program called RivaTurner which allows you to adjust your fan speed and other things.
