Discussion in 'Windows Vista and Windows 7' started by Kousei, Nov 23, 2009.
Yep, same reading pretty much..
That's not good. The normal operating temp for that card is about 40C and 60C under full load.. Are you comfortable enough to open up your computer and see if the fan on the video card is working?
I would be comfortable under normal circumstances but..there's a nice little sticker that says "Void Warranty if opened." On HWmonitor, it said my graphics card GPU was around 40C but the aux was up in the 90s. I had no problems of any kind on Vista but as soon as I started using Windows 7 is when the problem occurred. I wanna say its just the drivers but that 90C has me worried. I really don't want to ship it back either but I almost feel like I'm going to have to. The computer is only maybe 2 months old now, bought it from Best Buy.
What are the other temps? That 90C may just be a sensor malfunctioning then. There are only 2 components that can get that hot, one is the video card and the other is the cpu. If you have temps listed for both and they're both under around 50C then I wouldn't worry about it too much. Have you had any problems with pics since the new driver?
Absolutely none so far, I also play some of the latest PC games..I've yet to really play any since the driver downgrade. I'll play a bit today to see but it only happened a few times when I booted up a game, it'd do the same thing as when I loaded up the pictures. All the other temps were around 40C.
Definitely good to hear. Maybe you've got it licked this time.
Yep, considering the computer actually recovered from the exact error..I'm hoping this is it. I'll know who to go to if things go south again.
I'll be here, I'm sure, if you need any more help.
