GPU Fan not working

My gpu fan is not working so i went to google to find out how to make it work it again so they say reconnect the fan and clean the dust, so i did that but it wasnt working too, then i saw that the 4pin connector is broken i can see the electric cables from inside, thats why the fan is not working so is there anyway to repair the connector or i have to buy a new gpu??

If it is just the fan that has died, and there is still power to the card's fan connector, then the heatsink/fan assembly can be replaced. You should be able to get a suitable replacement from your local computer store, although I'm not sure what you have in Brazil.

You can buy a new connector from a computer shop or online and fix your issue. You just need a pair of pin nose pliers and a bit of patience.
