If the gpu fan is not working, it means the cpu fan is not working, which is why you are overheating (there is no gpu fan).

And, since you provided no information, do this:

let me make them clear >

I already said on my statement, "gpu is working because i can use computer, BUT the gpu fans not working (overheating as go on)"

here is a clip of the gpu (gpu is working when using the pc JUST ONLY the fan of it not working (not spinning) which will lead to oveheating GPU)

2pins of the fan is plug into the gpu,


What can be the possible cause of this? (fix)

Well, several problems:

  • You did not provide the ssu report.
  • Intel does not have add-on graphics adapters
  • That does not appear to be an intel desktop board

Run the ssu report as I asked so we can get the information needed.

I don't need to see the SSU report. This is a pre-Core motherboard (Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad or something similar); pretty ancient. This is also a 3rd-party graphics card whose fan has failed. There is nothing that we can do about it.

Give the fan blades a shove and see if you can get them to spin again (might be caught against the cowling).

Get a replacement fan.

Get a replacement graphics card.

the thing about this is, that's already the replacement fan (new fan),

reason i can only think of is faulty socket (2 pins)

which i don't know if making sense, because the gpu is working

You've wiggled the connector?

You've tried plugging it in the other way?

Are you sure that you got the right replacement fan? Some boards only provide 5V so fans that are 12V either don't spin or spin only very slowly.

the old fan is 12v and the new one is also 12v

here is the clip trying to use the old fan again (wiggling fan) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vhh7VHfFunU6s8UzY7D0NbiGncjYMdj9/view?usp=sharing

the fan had no blockage as shown because the fan can move only if u wiggle

tried to wiggle the connector (nothing happens)

overheating while using the pc ->

Well, sounds like you will need to replace that graphics card. I would look for something from the same era; there are lots of compatibility issues that can crop up using something more modern.

Ok , thank you for that,

the thing i want to know now is WHY that thing happened,

any idea why? (im just curious)

like this gpu was like 2months old of use on this old pc,

and i just cleaned some of the dust and dirt, rub them, remove screws and when i plug it back its not working, like i just clean it, i did not change anything and back everything correctly

I haven't enough information to identify what has happened. What I can say is that this is a very old system and components can get fragile with age. Your 2 month-old card is really a lot older than that.
