Win7 lock up gtx 260

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Okay so before I even get a chance to abuse my gtx 260 when I go to run a game or some thing Windows 7 locks up and the card becomes very hot any ideas?

i was running a gtx260 on win7 for ages and had no issues so its probably not compatibility. have you tried lastest drivers?

also maybe check circulation, that all fans are working properly and not blocked. gpu cooler isnt covered by cables or anything....

That I have so hmm. Maybe it needs to be greased? Could it be getting too hot?

How long have you had the card? is it second hand/used? have you tried taking the side panels of your case and cranking all fans etc....

EDIT: Yeah if youre going to reapply thermal grease you may as well get a new cooler for it too... check the heatsink on it for dust and general rubbish haha

The card is used and my 6850 does not get as hot as the gtx 260.

seeing as its second hand, RMA probably isnt an option. in that case:

and probably some thermal paste if you dont already have some..... that should solve your problems.... what cooler is it running?

why are you running a 260 over a 6850? or are they separate rigs?

I'll apply new grease when I wake up in the morning. I will report back with my findings.


Edit: I re greased it and it works just fine now. I will buy a after market cooler when I have more money.
