9700m GT overheat problem

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

In october I bought a new laptop the Acer Aspire 8930G with nvidia 9700m GT. The laptop is great and fast and the cooling is also perfect.

But yesterday I formatted the hard drives and installed a Fresh copy of Vista bussines like many times before. But my graphic card is overheating. Everest shows 69C in idle mode and 110C in load. At 110C the laptop turns off. Im like WTF!

I did nothing really nothing to the laptop. Yesterday it was working perfect. But now I cant play games even for 5 minutes.

People help me! Im from Slovenia and bought the laptop in Austria and I dont want to send it back cuz I have to pay a lot for it. I installed all the newest drivers for the chipset, audio, etc. I tried more than 20 kinds of drivers. What is wrong? I cant believe tha it cant change from one day to the other.

Did I maybe forgett to install some kind of a driver?

Thanks a lot, m0LN4r

What the driver to the graphics card installed ? ? ? What version of Everest and have ? ? ?

To sum up no indication of faith in this program because I show two different temperature card SLI which is weird ! ! ! I use CPUID Hardware monitor .

Yo man!

I tried 180.48, 178,xx on nvidias site, the original 176,xx and so on... Currently i have the original ones.

I have te newest everest and it is not lying because the computer turns off when the 9700m GT reaches 110C...

Do you copy?

I understand first what you should do in my humble opinion is to re system again and see what is going on! Do fans work properly ? ? ?

Well, i have the feeling that they are working and responsing slower than usual...

So concludes with the technical matter but I wonder why! Wait until tomorrow, how can someone who knows more of the technical answers !!!

But re-install the system to be sure because the error may have been an error!

does the laptop bottom(mainly where the graphics card is) gets hotter then usual? if not, then I think it is the sensor problem, you can exhange it or do a BIOS thresh hold mod, simply extract your video bios using nvflash software, open the BIOS using nibitor, and go to the temperature tab, find the column says 110, change to 140 or however you want.

WARNING, this method ONLY safe if that sensor is broken, if you do this and your laptop IS overheating physically, then you will burn out your laptop

You should also use an electronic or IR thermometer to make sure that the temperatures are in the acceptable ranges < ~95C
