Fan on CPU spins and then stops

by danthesaint / April 4, 2013 6:01 PM PDT

Hi All,

Im having a problem where the fan spins and stops on CPU.

For the last few weeks i have been having problems with my video card where i was getting streaks down the screen.

Do you think this may be the problem? and the video card has failed or could it be something different?

So all I can write is that sounds more like a GPU issue.
