I recently purchased ( second hand , so no warrenty ) a Ti4200 graphics card.
I put it in my machine connected the fan wire on to the motherboard then started my machine up, the graphics card did not show up and when I looked at it the wire that powers the fan had got trapped in the fan blades ( a poor design ) so I presume the chip has been fried Ha Ha !.
Can anyone tell me if a new chip can be purchased and how to insert it or should I just bin it. Regards Alan

Have you re tried the card?

Did it definately work BEFORE you bought it?

You won't be bale to change the chip - it a new card job i'm afraid.

Now bin it.

You seem to have found reasons enough, what a shame.

Thanks for the advice in the bin it goes.
