Dell D800/Geforce FX 5200 problem/overheating

Recommended Posts

I am basically having some MAJOR problems right now. I lost my original adapter for this D800 and ive been using for some time the adapter for the first version of the XPS that came out a few years ago, it has the same Voltage output its just bigger and I think it may have something to do with my computer constantly overheating and dropping my framterates in games from 50 to 10fps after a few minutes of game play... I have been thinking about doing the copper mod on the Go 5200 or buy the Quadro for the M60 which fits in this D800. But in the meantime.... can anyone help me out with any trick I can do so that my video card doesnt downclock itself??? How can I reduce heat? Should I underclock it manually??

Thank you!!

ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

Have you ever cleaned the cooling system ?

Yes of course I have cleaned the cooling system on it many times. I am thinking it could be the adapter.... but I just let me system cool for like an hour or so, and I turned it on....and it was at 2.1GHZ, I turn on the game and it immediately drops the speed to 1.1GHZ-1.5-1.7 randomly....just keeps SPEEDSTEPPING..... how can I disable this?!?! I have tried windows built in Always On or SpeedSwitchXP... I have spent months on this now...Dell has sent me all new hardware, so the problem isnt there...the ONLY abnormality is the adapter... but I dont see how it can affect the system after only a few minutes...when its the correct voltage.... 19.5V and 7.7Amps (my laptop wants 19.5V and 4.62AMPS) could this higher AMP be the cause of the problem?!

THANKS!!!!

I can't imagine how the amps could be responsible. A fast speedstepping must mean the CPU heat is not properly conducted to the heat sinks.
