Question about Abit RX600PRO-GURU RADEON X600 PRO GURU, (256 MB) Graphic Card
Recently my video card has been degrading in performance. For example, there was a certain computer animated movie that was released a while back. It is extrememly well detailed and can only be run on a pretty good graphics card to run smoothly. It used to on my CPU, but now it's aall choppy. I changed the amount of virtual memory, erased a buttload of stuff off that particular partition and quite a few other things befor I dicided to open the OC Guru. It says that the fan on my Abit RX600PRO-GURU card is at 0 rpms and is giving a warning that says core fan abnormal. It isn't dusty at all and free spins when I do it myself, and I don't feel any air coming out from it when my cpu is running. Any suggestions (seeing as trying to adjust fan speed isn't working). Maybe I missed something.
Hi Naida, A while back I had a computer that was having all kinds of video issues after it had been on for a little bit. I pulled the video card out and like you was able to free spin the fan and didn?t see any dust worth mentioning. Also like you I ran the computer with the case open to verify the fan was actually spinning but noticed there really wasn?t much air being moved. I removed the fan from the card and to my surprise found that the cards heatsink directly underneath the center of the fan was blocked with a solid ball of dust I couldn't see before. Cleaned that out, reassembled and I was good to go. If that doesn?t do it you might consider replacing the card fan. They?re small, cheap and run full board on gaming machines. Since you?ve gotten some messages indicting your software detects 0 rpm it would be a logical and cheap thing to try. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this post.
