Hi, I've got a dell 8000 studio xps, until recently, the fans were very loud (annoyingly so) but the system ran fine so I dealt with it. Now my fans are super quiet (I would lay bets that they're not really turning) and my monitor (any monitor I hook up the the system) goes to power save mode after a short time. Is this a fan problem or a graphics card problem? I'd appreciate any help. I'm capable of installing cards/fans. I'm not supergreat with software issues, but I can muddle through with some assist.

Here's my computer parts list.

And where on this list are the fans even listed?
