Have I just broken my GFX card ??

Hi all,

So I have a Dell Optiplex SFF which has been running a MSI GeForce GTX 1650 GFX card fine for the past 6 months.

The PC is mounted under my desk and I just whacked it with my knee and the PC then started making a loud humming/buzzing noise though everything appears to still be running though the PC lost its hard wired internet connection at the same time ??

Opening up the case I can see that one of the two fans, on the card, is not spinning very freely ( compared to the other one ) and that is where the new noise is coming from.

Is it possible to disable the faulty fan ? Is that even wise ? Is it easy to fix ? And would the faulty fan and loss of internet be corrected ?

UPDATE: Panic over ... a couple of quick blows/taps on the faulty fan and it running normally now
