  1. hey all, im having a problem with my nvidia ti4600. its making this funny noise. im not sure how to describe this, but its like a clanging noise of some kind. i have a feeling the fan on it may be busted. i would blast it with compressed air but i dont have any at the moment. any help would be appreciated.

    Have you pulled the cover off yet? If not, do so. it may just be a wire hitting the fan blade.
    If you already pulled the cover & know thats not it
    Unplug the power and with a wet Q-tip clean out the dust from the fan and heatsink.
    Do you have a balloon? take apart a bic pen and put a balloon on the end of it. Blow it up and use that to blow out the dust .
    Resourceful, hey?...lol
