Windows 7: GPU fan got even louder ._.

If you believe the card is defective, contact the manufacturer and get a replacement. In the mean time you can use the onboard video (if you have it) to run the basic functions of your computer.

I do not believe the card is an issue, I believe the fan just sucks. The fan is 100% replacable, and much cheaper than a new card totally. Not to mention its already a better idea to get a 3rd party fan.

Win 10 Home Premium 64 Bit

what speed is it running at (fan)? what temp is your card running at? have you checked your fan isnt stuck at 100% or that your card is running way too hot for some reason?

Have you tried differant drivers

install this it will give you your gpu temp and current fan speed (it'll give you alot of other useless info too just ignore it )

When you are cleaning it are you stopping the fan from spinning, or just letting it spin when it gets hit by the compressed air? If you're not stopping it from spinning there is a good chance you have damaged the fan. It isn't made to spin at the rpm's it will spin at when hit with compressed air.

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

What Stormy13 said, I use a pencil or screw driver to block the fan from spinning so as not to damage it while i blow the dust out. It's also possible you just got a bad fan to begin with. I'm on my third GT 220. The fan on the first one wouldn't turn at all and the card was DOA. Number two had a loud buzz and eventually overheated. Third times a charm I guess as this one has been working fine for months now.

I just kind of put my finger in the way. I had it manually set to 65% speed for a the passed 3 weeks. I set it back to auto and it does seem to keep as cool but it gets higher before it drops back down. Where on manual it would only let it get so high and stay stable.

Make MP3 file louder

I tried MP3Gain (which I actually use frequently for leveling audio files) and it capped at 105.9dB, which isn't loud enough and the quality starts to degrade. I tried messing around a lot in Audacity, trying normalize and amplify, but they seemed to...

USB Headset louder with one USB port than the other
I use the front USB ports for my headset. there are 2 in the front. However there is a big noticeable difference in volume with the left compared to the right. The left one is a good volume and easy to work with, but the right USB port always has lower volume. My guess is that it's a power...

Fan gets louder when put into sleep mode
For my first month of having Windows 7 (Ultimate, 64-bit, 4x2gb ram, Intel Pentium 4 3.8GHz) my sleep mode worked fine. It would enter sleep mode, the fans would slow down to an almost muted level. After that month, every time I entered sleep mode my fans would get louder, not quieter, and...
