Introduction: Fix a Dying Video Card Fan

Ever had a fan that started to make noises and die at the worst possible moment. Here is a last resort fix that actually works. While it's not my first recommendation it could get you over the hump until your next paycheck until you can replace the fan completely or buy a new card.

thanks for this video. Just got a free xfx 6850 from a friend and while looking for a new fan online, found this. Didn't know about canola oil. Neat trick. Hope it works for me.
