I've got a nVidia Zotac Geforce GT240..a few days later whenevr i played a game it start a buzzing noise...Now whener i play after 5 mins the monitor stops displaying anything and im forced to res

It sounds like the shutdown is due to the card overheating. Does your card have a fan on it? If so that is probably where the buzzing noise came from. The fan either broke or is disconnected and thus the card is overheating. Try blowing out the fan with compressed air and making sure it is properly connected. If it is broken or you have no fan you may need to order a replacement fan or heat sync to fix your problem or get a new video card.

Loud gpu fan makes a buzzing noise that is very annoying

How long have you have the graphics card? The fans turn at a very high RPM, and when they start to wear out they can become imbalanced and make a buzzing noise. Replace the fan if possible, otherwise you'll need a new card.

But first, I would try blowing out the fan with some canned air. Sometimes an accumulation of crud or a piece of debris on one fan blade can imbalance the whole thing.

Loud gpu fan makes a buzzing noise that is very annoying otherwise works fine

see if there are any wires that are touching the GPU or its heat sink. Also see if there is any lose screw on the GPU assembly. or if the heat sink is lose. A lose screw or heat sink may be fatal for the health of your graphic card.

Making loud noise

What you need to open you comuter and have a look if the fan is spining in you card..if not you need to take it back to your supplier you baught it from....but if the fan is spinning just to check the temps get evga precision program.It runs with all nvidia cards...with the program you can put fanspeed up or down is the link for it...just install and proceed.. the noise should not be a prob but to make sure check your temps with program anywhere between 53-60 Is still safe...Please let me know how it goes and if this has assisted you :-)

I have a HP Pavillion 7600 series PPC with a ATI Radeon X800 GTO 512 MB card. The problem is the fan noise. It seems to run on maximum constantly and is terribly annoying. I know nothing about graphics...

Download ATITool It will allow you to adjust your fan speed. Be careful not to change any advanced settings as it may put your card out of warranty. The alternative is to buy a replacement heatsink and fan for your card.

CPU fan problem

The stock fans that comes with systems are usually fairly poor in construction and tend to fail. I would have a look at the fans and heat sinks on this website for a replacement.

I hope this helps,

Thanks for using FixYa,

Fan on Graphics card is making noise

I am assuming the noise is an abnormal squeel or such as opposed to the normally annoying fan noise that most cards have. If so...depending on the fan and card model, it can be replaced. But if you are like me, you want it fixed now. Most Fans are sealed and if the bearings go, well thats it for that fan, but some have a sticker on the center of the fan. i you peel that sticker off you might see the bearing, and if you are lucky enough to see that, drop ONE DROP of 3-in-1 oil, or such. if you cannot see a bearing and you cant find a replacement, you should still be able to remove the fan (Carefully). with the fan off, you can soak it in either wd-40 or light oil. after this you must be sure to clean off all excess oil (compressed air is best) before reisntalling.

Playing cod4, slow jerky poor performance

First of all I hope that you properly uninstalled the graphics drivers and restarted before you installed the graphics drivers for your new card. Old left over drivers can cause a major problem.

Assuming you did it right read below.

What graphics settings do you have it on? And is your firewall set to let it open?

You should also list your processor and the speed and make of your memmory.

I play cod4 on high with an agp .1950 pro @ 1024x768 resolution.

turn off antileasing and aniostropic filtering. Turn all optional settings off but keep textures on medium

No offense but you have the low end version of the hd 2xxx series and can probly only play at medium at best.

You can also go into catylst control panel and make sure the settings are auto balanced.
