Some of you may know I've been having big problems in TF2 lately with choppiness and artifacts.
I installed Speedfan and found that my video card temp is high. 63C. Supposedly that's the core temp. Ambient isn't coming in.
CPU Cores are at 24C.
HD is at 41C.
ACPI(whatever that is) is 43C.
So, it seems my video card is way too hot.
The wife's laptop just ate it 2 weeks ago. Video card went kersplat. She still doesn't have an acceptable replacement, but at least she can boot up and see her monitor now.
So, what do I do? How do I make things cooler in this laptop? It seems to be the video card that's worst off. I think the other stuff isn't *too* hot, just the Video.
Inspiron 9400(the 17" laptop) with nVidia 7900GS if that helps.
