Guest Woland Posted June 15, 2009 Report Share Posted June 15, 2009 I been trying a lot of drivers in almost all series. Basically if i don't stick to Dell's really old drivers my computer overheats. Although the GPU has an average temperature of 52 C I can feel the part where my video card is really hot. My card and heat dissipator have already been changed, twice by Dell. I recently installed 179.48 drivers and it was fine until I decided foolishly to try new drivers. I tried 180.xx drivers and my computer overheats even more as the GPU goes 56 or 57C. This apply to both the drivers hosted by laptopvideo2go and the ones on nvidia site. I tried uninstalling and going back to the old drivers (179.48) and I still get overheat problems. I use Dell Fan Control to monitor the GPU temp. I use cooler although not the Zalaman cooler since I have yet to find a distributor here in Mexico. Anyone know anything that help me? Perhaps some particular drivers to try. XPSM1730 Intel Duo 2.6 nVidia Gefore 8700M SLI 4 GB RAM Windows Vista 32 Bit Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
