    I got this vid card off of ebay around christmas time. It has been great for me. Now the fan has been running really slow or not at all and its pretty hot inside my case now. If anyone knows what I can do about this please post. Thanks

    No expert here but I think I'd be looking at getting another fan on that puppy real quick b4 you fry it! A new fan is a whole lot cheaper than a new video card. Am assuming that the fan is not all that tough to change on your card but I've been wrong before.

    Take the fan off, turn it over, peel the sticker and carefully put a very small drop of oil in the hole in the center then put the sticker back. That has worked for me on countless cards. (even new ones) Sometimes they need oil after a few days of use when new.
