    I recently bought a new cpu (Athlon II x4 propus 620). So I go and play gta 4 then all of a sudden my video card fan starts spinning faster and faster until my computer hangs and I start hearing loud high pitch noise. All in a 1 minute time frame. I quickly hit the reset button and everything seems to be back to normal, as in nothing was damaged luckily. Is there a way to fix this, there must be something wrong with the video drivers or something to do with the cpu. Please help.

    BTW I got these temperatures after I rebooted my computer.
    Video Temperature: 54C
    CPU Temperature: 43C

    Also I have the latest driver.
    My board also has the cpu listed in compatibility list.

    I tried to see if there was a voltage problem

    Im also a little scared to do anything beyond this point, if it happens again i might not be so lucky.

    Hi,

    It sounds like an underperforming GPU cooling, not a software...
    Grab a utility called 'furmark'.

    It will stress your GPU while showing the temperature.

    Run it and see where GPU temp gets. And whether it will crash GPU.


    Do I understand correctly, that the problem started when you've changed CPU ?
    Maybe it's CPU that's overheating ?

    Another possibility: Your power supply cannot cope with additional load after CPU upgrade.
    Such thing may also lead to system overheating.


    Bottom line:
    Run GPU stress test and see where your GPU temp goes.
    Run CPU stress test and see CPU temp...

    Your GPU should not go above 90 C
    Your CPU should not go above 62 C

    Wow thread necromancer :D :D

    Your CPU is idling way too high. It was probably your CPU fan and not your GPU. Your CPU probably overheated and crashed. Check the heatsink positioning.

    Edit: His CPU is probably fried now that it's been SIX DAYS since this was posted.

    Lol... Better late than never :)

    I agree that CPU idling seems to be high...

    However, we don't know what kind of heatsink is in there.
    3600 RPM.. yay.. could be stock AMD HSF with seating problem indeed...
    What else can rotate at such monstrous speed :p

    Cheers,
