Default gforce 5200 fx ultra problem

I just got this card and im having a weird problem maybe someone can help me. Sometimes when i boot up the computer it freezes and all these diffrent colors would pop up. Just like the old nes games when they didnt work, you would have to blow on them acouple of times.. The fan also died i think or just comes on when it needs to. Can anyone please help?

I would first try reconnecting the video card (taking it out and remounting it into the AGP slot) before you plug it back in blow everything off so there is no dust interferring with the connection.

If that doesn't work, give me the make of your card and I'll see if anyone else was having that problem. If your fan died it could be over heating.
