Sapphire HD5770 D4000 red led? Fan issues?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Sorry, I don't know if this is the correct place to ask but I can only assume that it is.

For the longest time, my graphics card worked perfectly with my computer and everything was fine, I never had cooling issues or anything like that and there really were no problems. Recently my computer would power up for a little while, seem to be working alright, but then shut off if you tried to use it for an extended period of time. Consecutive uses would make the computer shut off earlier than it had the try before, so I assumed the card was overheating. When I opened the case to have a look, I noticed that the D4000 red led was lit and googled for similar issues to my own, and it turned out that the led was related to overheating issues.

When I looked inside the case I noticed that while the fan was turning, it was bugging along slowly and not spinning correctly. I decided to take the card out, apply new thermal compound (along with my CPU) and then put the components back in. Since using the thermal compound (and compressed air to clean the fans and heatsinks), the CPU purrs and is a lot cooler, but the GPU does not work at all.

Now when my GPU is put back in the machine, the fan does not turn at all. All 3 green leds on the card light up and it seems to run fine for a little while, as it had before, but it eventually shuts off (as there is no fan movement) and again, consecutive uses shorten the amount of time the GPU works. I've taken the GPU out again, but I'm clueless about what to do next, should I buy a new fan? There is no debris in the fan and when I spin it lightly with my finger it seems to spin perfectly? Although there is no resist from the fan at all, it is completely loose. I don't know if that is a bad sign.

The GPU is just over warranty by a few months. I also have no idea where to buy a new fan if that's what I need.

Thanks for reading!

Sounds like your fan is dead. Try to find yourself either an Arctic Cooling Accelero Mono plus or Accelero L2 Plus. They are relatively cheap and VERY quiet.

I had the fan go on my 5770 and it's one of, if the only one I could find that fits.

You could also disassemble then reassemble. It is possible that something didn't go back together properly or the fan didn't get plugged in fully.

Take it as a sign to upgrade. thumb.gif

Awesome, thanks for the quick help. I'd love to upgrade but it's just after the holiday season etc. I've absolutely no money so I'll have to look into getting another fan. I'll take a look around for your suggestions.

I don't understand what you mean about the fan not being plugged in correctly, there's only one slot for a connector on the card AFAIK and that's the power supply. Do you mean the white connector with the red and black wire from the card to the fan?

What I meant was that it may not be fully plugged in.

This is already 2 years old post but i found solution:
tae out the cooler, clean with contact cleaner all parts including the GPU and the cooler. Apply new thermal paste.
Return the cooler.
In may case, the thermal paste was disintegrated!!!!
