My brother's MSI 9800pro (he bought it a few months ago) has a fan that keeps cutting off. It'll be fine for hours, then cut off. At other times it won't turn on during startup. Any ideas on a quick fix (if possible) instead of RMAing it?

He just bought Half Life2 so he is dying. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Well, I exactly dont know, but is the fan switching itself off ? It just might be a power management utility. Switching off when fan is not required. Somebody here with the same model might give better advice.

Using any OEM software for that card, if so ditchem and just use the ATI drivers.

Could be the fan in which Id just put the VGA silencer on for it really needs it anyways.
