My computer has been experiencing random shutdown issues, so I downloaded a temperature gauge. I noticed my graphics card might be running a little hot at around 90 degrees Celsius idle. I downloaded a GPU stress test and my graphics card failed after 40 minutes. Could it be a heat problem?
Computer: Gateway gt5628
Graphics card: NVIDIA 8500 GT
I ran a gpu stress test and my GPU I guess failed the stability test after 40 minutes. The temperature started at about 90 degrees Celsius, and climbed up till it hit 125 degrees Celsius. Then, it decelerated or something?
Is my GPU running too hot? If so, could it be causing my computer to shut down randomly?
Thanks for reading.
