I have a Nvidia geforce FX 5600 graphics card... It has been working fine with my computer up until a month ago and it keeps getting worse. At first in games the graphics would completely mess up and now I can't even start my computer with the card pluged in.
If I have the card pluged in my mouse, keyboard and screen aren't read... and nothing starts up. If i pop out the card then everything starts up fine. Sometime it still works with the graphics card, but it takes up to 10 restarts for the computer to read the screen.
What could be the problem?
Is the card just fried?
Time for a new card?

P.S the fan also stoped spinning on the card. If that is any indication of anything.

I have a 5200 card/ try going to the GForce web and see if there is an update for the driver.

Well if the fan stopped then the card likely is overheating but the damage may already be done. I think I'd replace the card before replacing the fan.
