Hi - XP SP3 - RAM = 2.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2,
95% free space, seems to be slowing a bit -
Just noticed in Speccy that Graphics temps are VERY high ? ?
The tower was cleaned several weeks back, and this seems odd unless the Graphics card is faulty - -
All other temps are mid 20's but graphics are running at about 60C soon after startup - - -
CPU
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
Fan Speed 1739 RPM
Bus Speed 266.9 MHz
Rated Bus Speed 1067.5 MHz
Stock Core Speed 2400 MHz
Stock Bus Speed 266 MHz
Average Temperature 21 °C - - -

Graphics
GeForce 8500 GT
GPU G86
Temperature 62 °C - - -

Next - Shutdown for 1 hour - - -
Graphics - 30 Seconds after startup -
Temperature 56 °C - - -

Any Ideas ? ? Thanks -

Do you could touch / feel your VGA card with your naked hand while your computer turn on?
Just to find out what area on your VGA that produce that heat?

~ If the heat is from area near from VGA Heatsink, you could consider to change it or cleaning Thermal Paste on that Heatsink and add new Thermal Paste on it.

~ if the heat is from the capasitor / ic / etc that not near with VGA Heatsink (VGA is small so please dont say 3 centimeter is near), you could change that component if you could do it, but PROCEDD WITH YOUR OWN RISK.

I have just installed SpeedFan and this is showing other problems also -
In the morning I will take the tower apart and check all components then look further - :blink:

Thanks for the hints that made me investigate further :thumbup2:

Could you tell what is your VGA Card? Brand and Model?

Does it under warranty or not?

No warranty, as this is a reclaimed computer to replace my older XP SP3 Samsung Desktop in my signature.
I have turned it off and I am using my Win7 laptop for now until I find the problem.

Thank you for asking about where the heat was from, because that made me D/load SpeedFan and find some other 'problems' ? ?

In the morning I will look inside and test a few parts (9 PM now in Australia) , and make sure it is fixed before I use it again.

:hello: Catch you later - -
