  1. My video fan Whirrs and it sounds like it is have a bit of difficulty.

    The video card spec are as follows:

    Type: Plug-in card

    Graphics Processor / Vendor: ATI Radeon 9600 XT

    Installed Size: 128 MB

    Digital Video Standard: Digital Visual Interface (DVI)


    My computer is made from Sony (Vaio) and its model name is PCV-RZ504

    I have had it now for three years i think, does most video card fans wear out after this period of time?

    Please help :bounce:
