The other day an old computer's GPU stopped displaying video. My good old 8800gts 512 was still pumping it's fan pretty hard anyway. I switched the card for what is apparently a Radeon X550. It displayed video, but it's annoying little fan is screaming all of the time it has power. I'm assuming it is at 100%, no programs seem to be able to read it, aside from load which is very low (3-14%). They read the CPU fan which is a solid 100% at 30C whether low or high load.

Comodo and Malwarebytes find no problems, swapping the power supply made no difference, just cleared CMOS to no effect.

After the cmos clear, it had a boot hiccup and the fan slowed for a moment, but i think it was just the system power cycling. It had AMD's Cool n' Quiet disabled cuz default, so that isn't the issue.

I can't even think of what to try next, please, any help would be appreciated.

AMD 6400+ BE
ASUS M2NE-SLI
2 GB RAM
Radeon x550 (or so it comes up, card says nothing)
CoolerMaster GX450W/Antec EA750
Windows 7 pro 64
