Default Re: ATI radeon 6770 fan problems???

As a sidenote, when I took this screenshot I was running dual monitors, (one 1920x1080 and one 1280x1024) and blops 2.

This happens everytime I play a game.

Yea that's a problem. Check to see if the fan is actually working, and if it is repaste the heatsink and make sure it's seated properly.

Repaste = re apply a dot of thermal paste to the center of the GPU core.

I figured as much lol. Sounds like the paste may be dry or there isn't proper contact to the GPU. Before you tear it apart, check with MSI Afterburner for another report on temps.

Turns out, just today my GPU just gave up. Period. I was chilling, playing borderlands and suddenly: No signal detected.
My monitor just doesn't detect any signal whatsoever from the gpu. I've tried everything. I'm taking it on Thursday for repairs 'cause I've got warranty :P Thanks anyway
