My graphic card overheats!?!?

  mikemike2004 17:32 01 Aug 06

Dear all,

My computer is only 4 months old and even on the first day using it, I discovered the temperature of the graphic card is 72"c. Therefore, I took out the modem card and it trimmed by 10"c. Nowadays it operates between 60-67"c.

My computer specs is:

- Compaq Presario 061
- Athlon 64 3700+
- 256mb nVidia GeForece SE Turbo Cache
- 1,024 mb DDR

Does the graphics card have a fan?

Is the fan working?

My pc's 6 months old and my GeForce 6800xt card runs at 65*c.

Just checked and the slowdown threshold is 120*c
