Question about BFG Technologies AGEIA PhysX 128MB GDDR3 PCI Physics Accelerator Card

1 Answer

Hi, for some reason, after Windows 7 has loaded the fan stops spinning on the Ageia PhysX card. The fan also makes a weird noise which it never used to do. Do u know what's wrong with it? It's weird 'cause if I was to stay in the bios before windows boots the fan doesn't stop spinning, it only stops after winodws 7 has fully loaded.

In BIOS the fan always runs at full power, in Windows the speed is supposed to be automatically adjusted, depending on how heated the processor is. In your card it appears that the fan is dying, no longer capable of running at anything but the full speed. You will have to replace it - follow this

When i turn on my pc all seems well for about 5 secs then the heatsync fan and the tower fan stop moving and at that point my video card fan starts spinning 5 times faster what would cause this


Following are the reasons for overheating, just take care of these things::


1. Stop Overclocking your CPU
2. Make sure your Heat Sink is placed properly above the processor
3. Clean the Processor fan, Heat Sink and other peripherals
4. Use High Speed fans
5. Use CPU Heat Sink Paste in the processor
6. Make sure your dint restrict the speed of CPU fan.
7. Use Additional Cooling Units


If such problems occurs due to internal errors then i would suggest to perform a full computer scan with pc optimization tool like PCFresher for an instant fix.

Card started making loud clicking noise i have tried blowing dust out of it when i start my computer within a few minutes clicking starts again


Hi, couple main reasons to get loud clicking in a computer. First is the hard drive, so if you can turn the system off and disconnect the power and the information cable from the hard drive, yes your computer will not boot all the way back into windows but that is ok since you just want it running for awhile to see if the clicking stops. Next thing would definitely be the fans, any fan in the system, the blade part of the fans can get loose sometimes and start to hit the sides as it spins around, you need to be sure about which part it is that is causing it, it can come from the power supply fan, the case fan, the video card fan, the cpu fan, and you might have more than one case fan, test by disconnecting one at a time just make sure to disconnect the device too so you do not over heat anything. Once you identify which fan just replace it, if its something like power supply or video card, unfortunately you might want to look into either warrantying the part or buying a new one.

My fan makes so much noise especially when i play video.Can someone help


The problem with fans is there really isn't much you can do with them. Normally they begin to make noise as the bearing assembly begins to wear, or it might just need to be cleaned. In either case you need to crack open the case on your laptop, then you can inspect the fan. You can try cleaning it at that point, but usually its easier just to replace it. The reason why it makes more noise when you play videos is because video media requires more system resources to run, which also generates more heat. So, while you have your laptop open you may want to check your video card (which should also have a fan) and make sure that its clean. A dirty video card will **** out a lot earlier than it should.
