I have a question regarding my Gateway p-7805u FX gaming laptop. --- LINK
I have been trying to figure out how to increase the GPU fan speed on this model. It runs a Nvidia 9800 GTS.
I have tried using Riva Tuner, Speed Fan, Asus GPU Tweak, and MSI Afterburner. All of these however, do not work. None of them recognize a fan control for this GPU. (Thus, I cannot increase the fan speed).
So, I was wondering if there is a way for me to locate the file where the temperature parameters are set. (Because there has to be one somewhere on this PC.)
If the temperature of the GPU reaches, lets say, 74 Degrees Celc... Then the GPU fan will kick on to "X" RPM, to dissipate the heat.
Does anyone know where this file can be found, or if something like this even exists?
And if it does, can I manually alter the values (GPU Temp & Fan RPM).
Any suggestions regarding this issue would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much!
P.S. My GPU is running at 60 - 64 Degrees Celc. While I am sitting IDLE in Windows.
And even though this is a laptop, those are still HOT temperatures, considering my GPU is under NO Stress what so ever while doing that.
In addition, these temps concern me because after I received my PC back from Gateway (I had the screen replaced due to it finally dieing on me) the GPU fan was never the same. I have screen shots saved of my temperatures prior to the screen repair, and they were MUCH cooler than these. (An example would be, while gaming in World of Warcraft... 41 - 47 Degrees Celc.)
Now, knowing that, the 60 degree temps raise red flags. Considering the fact that they are running hotter while sitting IDLE in Windows, then the temperatures that I used to get while gaming and having the computer / GPU under a full load, prior to the screen repair.
