Hy guys.
I recently bought and Dell Latitude D820 with graphics card a Nvidia Quadro NVS 120M.
The problem is that everytime i start a game , it works ,only that after some time (usually 1 minute or 2) a fan starts working and the laptop shutdowns.
My ideea is that the GPU reaches a certain temperature and that temperature could be set in bios as SHUTDOWN Temp.
What can i do ?
I may have a few choices:
1.Look closely and maybe i will fiind an answer in the system bios
2.Someone provide me with a bios that has that temp shutdown value removed.

Any ideas ?
Thanks a lot !

hi,
i have the same problem with Dell Latitude D820 and Nvidia nvs 120M. my computer is over a year old and i use Vista business 32Bit.

it happened only after i updated the Nvidia card. the computer overheats every time i try to use demanding graphics or just play a DVD.
i am now also waiting for an answer to the same question.
on Sunday i will call my local computer provider to see what he has to say about it and keep you informed.

I used I8KfanGUI for Dell Laptops and it monitors my GPU card temperature with 70 C.
Yesterday i was able to play the games without any problems , but after 3 hours i've opened the laptop again and it manifested the same shutdowns.
I think it has something to do with the cooling or a setting in the GPU Bios.
Hope to hear from u guys soon!
Thanks

if you can open your laptop, check the fan area for dust and reapply some arctic silver5 or equivalent.
good luck.
