Cable of my Geforce g100 256mb got lose

Hello there ,
Last week my PC started dropping Frames in Team fortress 2 and CS:GO .
I though it for dust build up so i bought a dust remover at my local computer store and removed the dust from the PC .
i started up Team fortress 2 and gamed around 15 minutes at 60 frames per second after that my frames dropped to around 20 frames per second and my mouse didnt scrolle so smoothly .
i opened my pc again to find to my Gpu cooler wasnt spinning anymore .
the red and black cable that connects the cooler to the graphics card was still on but the white and black cable was lose (i think its the power supply for the cooler but i dont know much about it )i think the cable belongs in the motherboard or in the powersupply .
Already thanks for the help :D

  1. I don't think, it is the fan power. It might be the spdif cable for the hdmi audio. This card is an older model. The fan might simple not spin, because it is broken/dead?
  2. the gpu doesnt have a hdmi output and the card still runs when i power on the system .
    do you maybe know where i should connect it to ?
  3. Hi
    I have pulled up a number of images for the g100 and most of them only have one red and black cable connecting the fan to the card.
    One of them however has a 4 pin pwm connector with 4 wires,so you could check the card and see how many pins there are where the red/black connector plugs in,if there are 4 then perhaps the other connector plugs there next to the black/red.
    Where does the other end of the white/black cable connect to ?

    I found a link were there is a white and black cable , the fan and the red cabel is taken off by the owner tho

    And the long cable still attached to the card is the spdif cable for the hdmi-sound.
  7. So its time to buy a new graphics card ? since reconnecting it would not make a difference to the fan not spinning ?

    Or visit a computer dealer near you. He might find a replacement fan in the dump. :-)
