So I cleaned my graphics card fan today with an air can (I've done this many times before) I put everything back in and started comp the graphics card was running I saw fan running but monitor didn't turn on. So I let is sit for a bit and I checked all the connections and started it again computer sounded weird and all the fans were running incredibly high. I turned off computer took out grahics card and now it starts up so its def a graphics card issue. Please help me im ripping the hair out of my head trying to figure out if I somehow fried the card or something.

ok so I tried it and the graphics card seems to be running atleast the fan is BUT still no monitor and when I plug it into the stock port(for the monitor on the computer) it works even while the graphics card is in and its fan is running...im very confused does that mean the card is not working?

It appears that your motherboard PCI-E slot is damaged.

keep the graphics card until you get a new board it may work if it doesnt throw it in the trash.
