Over the past few weeks when i've come to turn on my computer sometimes the screen wont boot up to the bios screen, usually i turn the pc off (by holding power on down for 10secs) and then turning it on again, i do this until it kicks in. Sometimes it will boot up first time other times i can do that upto 12 times. Today i got sick of it and opened the case up to check if the leads were firmly in place and nothing was getting lodged anywhere etc. While i had the case open i switched the compuer on again and noticed my Graphics card fan didnt start up and therefore my screen and bios didnt start up. I did what i usually did and obviously when the fan kicked in the computer started fine. This has just started and other then this the computer works fine, i use the computer for gaming, i have as of yet had no random reboots or crashes, no lagg, freezing or anything that youd expect with a dying card. So far it litrally is just getting the card to start that is the problem.
I have always checked the AOpen website for updates but since im using an old card they dont dont seem to do updates anymore and i downloaded the newest Nvidia which comes with the control panel etc and seems to work with various cards. Now obviously since its only started since i did that you would prosume it was the drivers but it was fine when i first installed the drivers and for quite some time afterwards.
Any ideas? Like i said its getting the card to boot other then that so far everything else is fine.
Thank you in advance.
