i have a problem about my video card fan NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT...
my video card fan is making a noise i don't know what to do with it
the noise that the fan making is not consistent after start-up it will make noise sounds after a few minutes it will disappeared and it will back after 5-10 mins...
My laptop was quite new when it started making intermittent fan noises. They would go away if Ipressed or tapped near the fan. Might be clear for a day or two or come and go (not dependent on workload).
Since I'd already voided the warranty by replacing a smashed screen, I took it apart and used some 3 in 1 oil on my fan axis, which fortunately did come apart.
I was thankful it worked but annoyed it needed doing so soon.
Northumbia's link is exactly what I did, but I haven't seen that link before.
thanks for your response guys i appreciated it....my 1st thought is like what you said mr.robintheumpteenth but, since i never remove video card before that's why i ask someone who have much knowledge about video card problem...
anyways does it affect the video card if i didn't fix it for a month or a year?
My video card has been doing this, on and off, for the last 5 years. The PC is 8 years old, I oiled it in 2010 and again last year.
However, that does not mean that yours will not be the same.
A general blow out of the dust in the machine would not go amiss.
Borrow a hair dryer and a 1" Paint Brush > Take the PC out of the house > remove it's side panel > give the insides a good blow around > gently use the Paint Brush to dislodge any dust that does not immediately want to lift away > blow again > Return the hair Dryer to your Sister/Mother/Wife > Put the Side Panel back on > plug everything back in and switch on!
