Graphic card not spinning (pics) 100C at idle!


I posted a thread earlier today and I asked for what the problem is, so I opened the case and I saw that the graphic cards fan is not moving. I created a new thread because I didn't write the problem in the topics name.. So I took some pictures!!
As you can see my processor fan and the chassi fan works fine
Harddrives and other components
Here!!! Do you see that it is not spinning? I dusted it off and it still is like that..
Same thing here!!!

How do I fix it? I know it is the problem..

I mean, I got at the moment over 100C in idle.

If I can't fix it, how do I remove it? Would another graphic card fit in there?

Hi, sorry to hear about your problem. Judging by the pictures you should be able to replace it, but not with anything powerful. With out more information I can't help you. I need to know more about the hardware in your computers, pictures only do so much.

Download a program called CPU-z. Tell me the processor, motherboard, ram and video card.

if you want to use your current video card, you have to dust it off and install new fan.

otherwise you can purchase a new video card which have approximately the same power consumption. there are plenty of choice depending on budget.
