    Recently my screen has been flickering on and off OR I've been getting corrupt images on my screen with random colors. I tried reinstalling drivers from the nvidia website for my geforce 4 4600 ti card but the problem comes back after a short period of time. Is there anything else I can try?

    I decided to yank the card out and noticed the graphics card fan has failed (causing the card to overheat and cause display problems). Time to buy a new fan. How hard is it to find a fan for a geforce 4 ti4600 card and how much $$ am I looking at?

    a good one is around $15 or less. Easy to find online or locally at a computer shop.
