GPU Fan not turning
May 21, 2010, 11:22 AM
I have been having this problem for a while now. My GPU fan does not turn and the GPU does not turn on.
I have RMAed the motherboard and still the problem precisest.
I have no idea what the problem is and why this is happening. However the shocking part is:
Sometimes it does work. Sometimes after restarting the machine several times it works and when it works its perfectly stable .
My specs are:
Nvidia GTX 260 Core 216
Inter Core 2 Quad
ocz stealth xstream 600w psu
please someone HELP!!
Thank you in advance

did you plug in the pcie connectors from the PSU to your card? and did you over-clock the card? sounds like either a power issue or OC-related issue.

Yes I did plug the 2 pci e connectors from my PSU to the card. And no I never overclocked

Yeh, I might to that to be honest, however What I dont understand is why does it work sometimes , I mean if it was defective than it would not work all the time.
