high pitched squeak

why would a graphics card(8800gts)make a high pitched squeak as soon as the pc is turned on?

would attatching the 6pin molex help?

possible fan noise

its a constant noise

it will be if fan bearings are failing.

can i do anything?

you may be able to peel the label off the fan and see if there is a small pin hole in the centre of the hub - one drop of very light oil may solve the problem.

Not sure if the fans are renewable on that card it may just clip on.

sorted,apparently it`s an alarm on the card,requiring more power via 6pin molex

Glad it wasn't the bearing, could have been expensive.
