Faulty Asus GTX 750 OC 1GB(Graphics card)?.

Postby Phunky » Sat Oct 27, 2018 11:44 am

A few days ago my graphics card starting acting up. Even though it's idling the fan will go from 0-3000 Rpm, and back to zero again, several times a minute. CPU and GPU clocks are at their lowest and temp is around 32 degree celcius.
More or less at the same time audio drivers has been acting up. I can use my soundcard(Steinberg UR22 MK2) for things like browsing(pages suddenly takes ages to load, though) and watching videos, but Cubase get stuck while loading.
I'me dual booting(XP/Win10) and the problem is on both platforms.
I've reinstalled/updated drivers. Not only graphics, but also sound and network. Nothing works.
The revving doesn't occur if I'm in the BIOS.
After hitting google I've come to think that it might be a faulty chipset/fan controller.
I've ordered a new card, but maybe my conclusion is wrong, Any suggestions?.

Cheers

The fan on the GPU isn't controlled by the chipset/platform controller, the only thing that controls the GPU fan is the GPU itself.

So, you're probably correct in your choice of things to test.

I'd have pulled it out, cleaned the GPU heatsink (which given your other symptoms seems like a long shot anyway), updated the driver (it's a stretch, but it would manage some of the fan control) and failing that the next port of call would have been to find a spare to test with.

Pete, since you seemed to agree that my methodology was somehow sound, I replaced the card with a new (low budget, non-gaming) GT710, and everything is working smoothly again. Thanks for chiming in.

Glad to hear it paid off for you too.

Hopefully, you managed to dig up a passive 710 at that and it'll be the last of the possible GPU fan woes.
