|I just removed my graphic card fan for clean-up (RADEON 9600SE).|
During that time, i turned on the computer to see if it will work without the graphic card fan, it did work but at some kind of low resolution mode. Meaning that i had vertical lines in some video mode, for example, while watching a video ou during the windows xp logo starting sequence. Letters during POST were also affected but in a different way, some letter are more "highlighted" than others.
When i saw that, of course i reput the fan back on and restarted the computer, same thing happened. Am i doomed ?
I thought at first it might be a "dirty contact" problem so i removed the card again and gently clean the contacts with air. No difference. The display problem that i never had before re-appeared.
Is there a way to reset the graphic card (i mean by dong something to the hardware) since it's not windows related.
