GPU temp shooting up to 100 Celcius
First my graphics card would register around 60 degrees.
But recently I had a hardware problem I suppose with my G41 chipset, and I discovered that my system won't run on the Intel GMA. It would reboot as soon I logged in. Since then I run my system only on graphics card.
Is that the reason behind my GPU heating up, or is it fan problem that I am reading on various forums. The fan is proper as I checked it.
My graphics card is GeForce 210.
boot up with the computer opened up
and see it the fan IS running on the card
unplug everything and replug them back in
and see if the fan is working then
time for a new fan
First thing to check is of course the fan, as suggested by John_VV, and if necessary clean out the dust from the cooling system.
If that doesn't help, we need some more information:
Is this a card with passive cooling system (no fan, not unusal for the G210)?
If so, do you have proper ventilation (at least one case fan) in your case?
Do you use the Nvidia or the nouveau driver for that card?
How do you read out the temperature?
Is this under heavy load or idling on a desktop?
I looked at the fan I feel that the fan is really rotating slowly. I use the Nvidia drivers and I read the temperature
from the same tool.
Here is my card -
My monitor has shut down a couple of times while the system was running, so I have to look at it now.
