For the past few weeks I've been getting an error that said one of my system fans has stopped working. I opened up my case and checked it out and I seen that the fan on my card was not spinning properly. It looks like it tries to spin, but it stops every half a second. I was wondering what the problem was because the fan wasn't damaged. My system will overheat usually and turn itself off so I am a little worried and confused on what to do.

the fan itself could be of balance or defective so it wont turn to refresh graphic card so overheat could occur

Try spinning it gently with your hand and see if it gets caught on anything/

Yeah, I tried that thinking it was caught on something, but nothing came in contact with the fan. When I was cleaning the inside with some compressed air the fan seemed to spin fine when I was cleaning it.
