    I have a GeForce 4 TI4600 that recently had the fan fail on it. I replaced the fan with an aftermarket one and plugged it back in. However, during the install, I accidentally scraped one of the circuits directly next one of the 1-way plugs that secure the fan down. I was having problems with having monochromatic lines and blocks running up and down the screen when the fan went out and am having the same problems now. However, this time there will either be no display when booting up, or the display will be on but will die before loading into windows.

    There's also a "previous fan failure" message that pops up every time i try to load. i cleared the log many times but it still won't go away.

    I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me! Thank you so much!

    if you scratched a trace, it should be okay unless you got it all the way down to the copper. If so, and you are good w/ electronics and have a staedy hand, repair it w/ a bit of solder, and put some tape on it. If the scratch is not all the way to the copper, the trace most likely isnt causing the problem.
