Windows 7: When computer goes to sleep graphics card overheats

19 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 - HP 32 Bit

I installed new driver the latest from NVIDIA 196.21 and set screeen to shut down after 1 minute waited 30 seconds and touched the mouse the temperature had already increased by 6C to 46C. I think this is a bug in Windows or NVIDIA and very significant. I guess the next step wonuld be to find a way to contact them. A daunting task I might guess. Are there any MS or NVIDIA tech's monitoring this forum?

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Actually contacting the laptop manufacturer with the problem might be the most likely way to get the information across.

If the manufacturer cares at all about their product or customers (a stretch I know), then THEY will have the clout to ask for a bug fix from their vendors (MS/Nvidia). But I would start there anyway...

That wold be the "good citizen" thing to do but sadly I would not expect a fix soon or ever. But you can feel good that you tried to help

Windows 7 Professional

This actually happens to me too. I am running Windows 7 Professional 32 on a laptop though.

The graphics processor is a built in intel. When I leave it (to download or shower or whatever) and it goes to sleep, the fan goes off and the whole computer actually feels hotter than usual. The only way to "fix" it is by restarting.

So I can probably say that it's NOT the graphics card, or if it is, then it's something shared with this intel card that I'm using.

PS. I found another bug related to sleep mode, and that is if it goes to sleep mode, all the widgets and Windows Explorer get bugged out visually. Turning off gadgets and turning it on again and restarting explorer (through task manager) fixes the bug but it's extremely annoying.
