Hi, my AMD Radeon HD 6850 died and I bought an Nvidia GTX1050Ti. Since I can’t access the pc with the old card, I can’t uninstall the old drivers from AMD. So I just installed the new card and the drivers. Is there anything that I still have to uninstall? The card seems to be working.

extra question: the fans on the gpu seem to not be moving. What could be the reason for that?

I managed to get the fans to spin. Apparently there’s a 0dB mode that turns them off until the card reaches a certain temperature

You need to uninstall the AMD driver. Really best to use DDU.
