Need a fan for a video card

Anyone out there knows where to buy a fan for a Nvidia Geforce4 MX 440SE video card. A generic one will not work.

Some 1,000 fans there.

In closing, you might never find the exact fan. I mount close enough all the time with custom mounting plates.

Thanks for your time and help. I am going to get the generic fan and try to install it. You would think that Nvidia would have a way to buy a replacement fan for there cards.

There are replacement coolers out there for some of the GeForce cards. My mind didn't think to look beyond the sources I use to solve this issue. For the people I deal with will not part with the money for a tennmax cooler so I just use generic fans. However I always get a ball bearing fan if I think the card/system will need to be used for more than a few months.

Hint: Exacto blade knives, tin snips, plastic nuts, bolts and even plastic cable ties all make for great source material and tools to fashion a new fan mount. Sometimes I have to take up space that blocks the adjacent PCI slot, but what other choice do we have? At least at this price...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
