Heat-Problems with new 179.13 Driver

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

First my Laptop:

FSC Amilo XA 2528

CPU: Turion64 X2 TL64

RAM: 2 x 2048GB Samsung DDR2

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS 256MB GDDR2 (179.13 driver with inf.mod from http://www.laptopvideo2go.com)

HDD: 2 x 320GB SATAII

OS: Win Vista Home Premium

My question is:

I had the original FSC Driver on system from CD before and I switched info 179.13 driver with inf.mod from http://www.laptopvideo2go.com.

Before changing the driver World of Warcraft was partly playable in lowest detail but there was a stable temperature at 60-65°

After changing the driver WoW is playable at full high details but the temperature of GPU is reaching a critical level at 85-90°

The motherboard temperature changes also in range of 10-15° higher.

So wtf is the reason for this grilling temperature? Does this driver overclock any hardware? In my opinion there is no other reason...

Please help me!

PS: I have monitored my CPU temperature too, it also changes its temperature in range of 10-15° higher.

No, probably the original driver was misbehaving, perhaps it didn't use performance 3D mode at all.

The 8600m GT should play WoW at max without any problem. My other comp with a 5 year old mi class card could. Like zipper said, there must have been a problem with the old driver. Try to raise you laptop or buy a laptop cooler.

Why should there be a Problem with the old driver? The old driver was buggy in performance but stable in temperature. The new driver is performancing but overheating the system. Maybe I understand you wrong.

How warm should the 8600M GS be or how warm could the 8600M GS be till T-I-L-T??

I agree with this conclusion. 85-90C is normal gpu operating temp. 60-65 is idle indicating that 3d mode may never have been used. I say that this is no cause for alarm.

Maybe the driver isnt for your laptop...

i changed my "original" laptop Xp driver, i get more performance but eat more so heating more. (Xa2528 have MCP51 wich in desktop means nforce 430...)

I changed my vga driver and it makes the same, temps raised 3 grades of Celsius, i hope my psu wont die. But yes more performance more heat...

If u are unsure about this go on service for clean your laptop. maybe help.
