Default GPU fan always at 100%

Built a PC for my mother out of old parts. Works great, except for the GPU fan always being at 100%, and while it's not incredibly loud it's high-pitched and gives both of us a headache. It's a Nvidia GT240. There's no settings in the Nvidia panel for it, and using EVGA Precision to adjust the fan had no effect.

Any ideas?

This person suggested MSI Afterburner to adjust your fan speed and the op has had success
Auto Fanspeed doesn't work with GT240

Nah the card works fine and is always cool :P It's just the fan that's annoying.

Sadly some of those small fans let out the most ridiculous wines.
