I would still try looking into other problems the card may have. wile many 9700's have died from overheating and failed BGAs, that may not be the problem, althoug it is likely the prob,en given the fan does not spin . There could be a missing SMD or cut trace somewhere. Or the RAMDAC could be bad so try DVI. And don't toss out the idea of baking the card. Wile baking a card is a often a temp fix, sometimes its lasts for quite some time.
Thanks, I'll dig out a DVI to VGA adapter and give that a shot. I'm not going to oven it based on the fact I don't have one to stop cooking food in. 😀
DVI to VGA adapter will still go through the ramdac
