Ok so when ever i try to watch videos on Youtube(or any for that matter)after about 30 secs to a min my computer shuts off. I have replaced the power supply and I still get the same results.
Now one thing I have noticed is the fan on the video card has doesn't spin (I don't recall it ever spinning either) I've sprayed canned air into it but no luck. I believe this is the problem but not sure. My computer is a low profile so I have even opened the case to hopefully get more air into the card.

I don't want to spend a lot of money to fix it so hopefully there is some kind of easy fix for it.

Thanks in advance

If the card cmesw with a fan...and it's not working...that sounds like trouble for the video card/system.
