|I have a 1.5 year old Gateway FX 4710-UB003A. The stock Nvidia 9800 overheated and died around 9 months in. I replaced it with a ATI Radeon HD 4650 512 MB DDR2. New card worked great until now.|
My video card runs idle on start up at around 40-50 degrees C. This temperature rises with use and no amount of idling will allow it to drop. When it reaches something around 110 degrees C it shuts down the computer. (All temps taken with Everest Home Edition.)
I have installed a new 500W Thermaltake PSU. This should not have been my problem, but it didn't hurt to try, I guess.
I have cleaned and reseated the graphics card (including the fan). I have cleaned the rest of the inside of the case and the main fan which sits over the CPU.
What else should I be trying? This problem didn't start until 6 months after the card was installed, if that makes a difference. I will be happy to post any other information that may be helpful.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
