Windows 7: GPU overheating

GPU overheating


Whenever I play a League of Legends game my PC crashes around 8 minutes or so, and when I check the Event Viewer it says Kernel-Power Event ID 41. I measured my temps and I noticed that my GPU was ~100 C while playing. I opened my PC and saw that the GPU Fan isn't spinning. I cleaned it from dust but that didn't change anything.

How do I fix it? :

Hi, you did not mention have you done anything to resolve the GPU fan issue? If the fan is not spinning and the GPU is in warranty, get it replaced.

GPU is not in warranty ; But i fixed the issue, I knock the fan a couple times and it started spinning, then downloaded MSI Afterburner and bumped fan speed to 100% and now GPU is in normal temperature.

If it happens again i'll just get a new fan. Thanks.

The GPU Fan is starting to show it symptoms that it may spin slower or will stop at any times. Get a newer card.
