My graphics card has started to get a lot hotter than it was,have noticed that the fan does not speed up when under load.It is a nvidia 280 gtx card.I can speed the fan up manually in riva tuner and this keeps it cool.How do i get it back to the settings that automatically made it go faster,I have tried the auto setting in riva tuner to no avail.Does it have something to do with the nvidia control panel? I have tried to changed the actual speed of the fan in this but it will not let me.It does not have an auto option for the speed of the fan.
Have looked through the bios nothing there,i think it all gors through the nvidia software,e.g. the control panel but cannot change it in that either.Have seen vids on you tube where people have option to change it.Dont know how to reinstall it as have lastest drivers just installed and it comes with them,i thought it might be corrunpted but its a new clean insatll and still no luck.Any other ideas?
I've an ASUS card and comes with a disc with SmartDoctor where I can set the fan manually or sync with mobo. Nvidia control panel doesn't come with fan control for me with the latest driver. Only other thing I can think of is to check the card is seated properly and the power connections are also okay.
