Windows 7: GT 220 Problems!!!!

Acording to my BIOS my CPU is running at 42c, its an Athlon II x4 2.6 GHz. My case temps are 35c. What Program did you use to get those temps? Let me know and I'll run it and see what temp my gt220 is running at. I'm thinking your temps might be on the hot side. Those little flames next CPU and GPU can't be good.

EDIT: According to CPUID Hardware Monitor My GT220 is running at 44c. Looks like your system is close to 10c hotter than mine acrose the board. You'll have to do some searching and looking up specs to see if thats way to hot or not.

OK here is my screen shoot:GT 220 Problems!!!!-capture.gif
I think your temps are on the high side myself. I'm running a quad versus your dual core and my case has no cooling fans in it. It's just my power supply exhausting the hot air. You might want to add some fans to your case or double check they are moving air in the right direction. Front mounted fans should be blowing in, rear mounted fans blowing out.

It might already be damaged from overheating. You'll notice it more in video intensive programs like games. Anything that puts a load on the card and makes it run hot. The only way to tell is to try that video card in another PC, or try a different card in your PC. If you can get a screen shot of what you see when it's acting up it may help. If you think it's a driver problem you may have to start over with a clean install. if you go that route I'd download the latest driver again just to rule out a corrupted download.

I'm on my third GT220. The first one was DOA right out of the box. The replacement for that one had a defective fan that buzzed. I started getting artifacts on screen during game play and ended up returning it too. The third one bought on sale at a different store has worked fine for months now. New parts can be defective, damaged in shipping etc.
As far as the drivers causing the problems, thats plausible but unlikely. That does happen but usually you get a lot of people complaining and new drivers are issued or the defective ones are pulled from being available. Also depending on the card, initially it may be shown as standard VGA and be running at a low resolution. There would be little stress on the card and you may not notice anything until you install the drivers and up the resolution. If you really think it's the drivers, un-install them, download a fresh copy and re-install them. Might want use system restore to go back to a point before you installed them if possible.

If hit the windows key and the pause/break that should open your System windows. In there click advanced system settings. Go to the hardware tab and click the device installation settings button. In the next window that opens select No, let me choose what to do. That will stop windows from automatically downloading drivers and installing them.

As far as keeping you PC cool there are a couple of basic things you can do. One is to make sure to keep the inside of your case clean. Dust build up on heatsinks will act as an insulator and trap heat in. Dirty fans will reduce thier eficancy. The general rull of thumb is to have any front mounted cooling fans drawing air in and rear mounted fans blowing it out. You also want to try and ballence things out so you have the same number of fans drawing air in as out. It dowsn't always work out that way. Its not a big deal unless its lopsided one way or the other. Taking the side panel off will sometimes do in a pinch.
