    Yesterday I was casually browsing the internet when my monitor turned off. I tried a different monitor and that one wouldn't work either. It turns out that my GPUs fan stopped working. So I plugged my monitor into the on-board and put a fan facing the GPU to cool it down. And now for some reason the fan is working again, and I still have the fan facing it. But the my graphics card still won't let any monitor work. Perhaps it could've just fell out of place or something? Also the exact model is the PNY Verto GeForce 9600 GT.

    If the fan on the GPU stopped working then it would have overheated and in that case the GPU could have easily fried itself; video cards run very hot if not cooled correctly.

    However the fan could have stopped spinning if the card is not seated correctly in the slot or if the power connector on the back of the card, if equipped with one, came loose. Check those things. Also since you reverted to the onboard graphics you may also need to enter the BIOS setup and set the primary graphics card too the PCI-Express Slot/PEG, save and exit. You may need to turn the PC off, flip the monitor to the 9600GT then turn it back on and see if you get a display.
