Overheating of graphics card while playing games

  • Clogged fan

The main device responsible for maintaining a constant temperature of your video card is the fan present in the processor. If this isn't functioning efficiently it's quite obvious that it would result in your video card overheating. If you don't regularly clean your computer, it could be highly likely that your fan is clogged with dust.

This is one of the simplest causes of your video card overheating which can be fixed by simply cleaning your fan, preferably using a blower.

  • Broken fan

A follow up of the previous point, in some cases your fan maybe malfunctioning or stopped working altogether. This could simply be diagnosed by switching on your computer with its cover open and checking if the fan is functioning. If it doesn't happen to be working, you have your answer.

  • Overclocking

Pushing your CPU to its limits by overclocking can cause your video card to overheat. This can seem fairly obvious too as if you find your video card overheating and if you've recently overclocked your CPU, it would explain it.

  • Faulty Drivers

This is a rare cause, but depending on your video card's brand a badly developed driver could also cause your video card to overheat. If you use an unusual video card with questionable reputation this could be the issue.

  • Inefficient Airflow

While your fan maybe perfectly in tact and working, the location of your fan also matters. If there isn't sufficient air flow to your video card it can also cause it to overheat.

Those are typically the 5 main reasons to your video card overheating. If you have any other points in your mind, feel free to share them below.

Dell inspiron 8500 laptop screen goes white

hello, when the screen changes colors or stays in one color it is mostly cause of a video card problem. Does this happens only when overheated, then maybe you can blow the cpu-video card heatsink and use a base with a fan to avoid overheating. If the screen is white all the time then maybe only a 2nd monitor will help understand if this is a problem of the video card or the screen.

Hello, my Video card ATI RADEON 9250 is flickering and when I play a game like warcraft it get hung or restarted, I have already installed the newest driver but it does not help either, What should I do?...

your video card may have suffered from over heating, check to be sure the fan (if it has one) is running, also make sure there is space around the video card, if you can leave an empty space above the processor and chips (if the card has been damaged from overheating, your only option is to replace the card.

Desktop wont turn on. two short beeps then one long beep over and over. All the cable are conected checked the power supply, changed it, still the same

Explanation: The BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue.
Troubleshoot the video card.: If the video card has a fan on it , clean it and make sure it moves freely. It may be causing an overheating problem.
If the video card is not at fault, troubleshoot the motherboard.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

This is a typical issue with this computer due to overheating. Its a design fault that HP is not willing to acknowledge. You can replace the graphics card with an original NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600 if you can find one. Unfortunately, the overheating problem will still be there, and your new card may not last long. Alternatively you can disconnect the graphics card, and connect the monitor to the slot where the card was. The 3D graphics capability will no longer be there. But for everyday use it may be fine.

Graphics card

most of overheat problem of a video card was cause by overclocking like what ive said. maybe you changed some configurations of the main settings of your video cards. just relax about the heat of your video card it will be ok. heres an advice, just take off the side case you computer (it should be expose) so that the heat of your video cards and other devices will not stay inside. tell you something, i have a computer shop and all of them are heated everyday because i dont have an aircondition to cool the computers and the entire shop. im just using 3 electric fans, to cool my computers and my customers. luckily no video cards and other device get damage. hope that helps!

Graphics Card Problem

im sure that is AGP, because we have the same video card on my other computer. your PCI slot is for sound cards, link modem, etc.. whenever your playing games make sure that you put the video option in to medium or low because that starts the heat of your video card when you use it into the limit. Try to cool the video card if its happening the heat again by using a fan and aim it to the video cards.

Others are overclocking their video cards to push the capability of the video card over the limit. their using a cooling fan or a tube like to maintain the temperature of their video cards. hope that helps
