How can I fix my gtx 980?

I’m buying this pc from my uncle today and it has a broken graphics card. Me and him have tried fixing it but can’t figure it out. I put my graphics card in it and it runs fine, but I with the 980 it blacks out when you open a game and you have to restart it. The fans also ramp up super loud. He has reapplied thermal paste, I have tried Msi afterburner and neither of them work. I have ran out of ideas so I decided to see if anyone knows what to do before I go and buy a graphics card for it at a time like this.
