Default Problem with 9800 GT fan

Ok well I got a new card today, PNY Geforce 9800 GT. I went to set it up, everything seemed ok until half way through downloading drivers the monitor went black and card made a funny noise. I shut it off, tried again and same thing. Realized afterward that the fan isn't running.

Now I meet all the minimum requirements of the card, and I think I plugged everything in right. There wasn't a spot for any power cord so it was basically just plug into the PCI slot and go.

Why would the fan not be running? Right now i'm thinking I just have bad card and need to exchange it but any other ideas or solutions are welcome. thanks.

If the fan isn't running from the get go you have no choice but to RMA, there is nothing you can do.
