hello,i just built my first computer and i bought a second hand broken rx 470 4GB hoping that i can somehow fix it and when i try to boot up my computer when i have the gpu installed it doesn't boot up at all,

I have no image on the monitor but all fans are spinning,including the gpu fan,is there any way i can fix it ?

If the GPU is definitely broken (and judging by your post I'd say it is), fixing it isn't an option, certainly not at home anyway.

You might be able to get a PC repair centre to take a look at it but it will cost you, though I suspect they wouldn't be interested in even looking at it

Almost invariably, a broken GPU is scrap unless it's still under manufacturer's warranty, and even then they seldom repair it, they just exchange it for a new one.

If you can get a refund of your money, that's the only good part.
