|Hi everyone, this is my first time posting so thank you in advance for your help.|
Last week sometime, I noticed my computer had a virus. I removed it using Malwarebytes, updated it repeatedly and re-scanned the PC until the scan showed no results three times in a row.
However now I am noticing that the fan on my GPU is not working (AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series). I noticed this because while watching a video on youtube, my PC restarted without warning. When I went into the AMD GPU Control software, I saw that the temperature on the GPU was at around 90 degrees C, and that the fan speed said 0%. After enabling/disabling the manual fan control, I noticed that every 5-10 seconds, the fan speed would boost up to 10%, and then drop back down to zero.
I am downloading an updated version of the driver as I am typing this, in hopes that it will fix the issue, but something tells me this may be hardware related, or something else.
Has anyone had this problem? Advice? Suggestions?
Thank you for taking the time to read.
