XPS 8700 - GT635 Overheating when playing games.

Q: XPS 8700 - GT635 Overheating when playing games.

I have this PC for years, and last year my GPU started overheating (The same game I've played with 70°C was now 100°C), so I cleaned everything and Reapplied the Thermal Paste on the processor. So everything was back to normal.
But last month, it started all again, but now everything is clean. Just to make sure, I cleaned it again but when I play a game like Overwatch, when the GPU is at 70°C, the game runs on 60 frames per second. But after 10min playing, the GPU is already on 103°C and the FPS has a massive drop to 20~25. This all started last month.
Could someone help me? Please, I know it isn't supposed to be like this.
My GPU is a GT635.

Hello there.
I bought my XPS 8700 two years ago, and it was going very well, until some months ago.
My GPU started overheating when I'm on every game. Even games I've played before that didn't overheat the GPU are now overheating it. I can't play any games because this causes the FPS to drop dramastically. I want to know what is causing this suddenly overheat, and I've already cleaned the CPU, but I don't know much about hardware, So I need help.
My system specs:
Video card: Nvidia GT635
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3,40GHz 3.40GHz

A:XPS 8700 GT635 GPU Overheating

check the fan on the card. make sure it is spinning freely.
that said, if you game you might consider investing in a better graphics card.

Hello, first time poster looking for help as I can't diagnose my issue after trying numerous things. Currently when I play a game the BSOD happens randomly, I can go a whole day without it, or it can happen frequently. It happens the most when I close or exit a game, then it'll kick to a blue screen.

I really appreciate what you guys do and I hope I followed all the instructions right on how to post my logs and stuff, here's the attachment and some basic system specs:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I have reinstalled to this computer numerous times.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad q9550 @ 2.83 ghz

GPU: Radeon HD 5770

Mem: 4 Gigs of Memory

Motherboard: p5n32-e sli nforce 680i chipset

A:BSOD Playing various games, closing games, no overheating.

Before we can even begin to find the underlying cause you need to update the following drivers. Especially asacpi.sys. Yours is from 2005

ASACPI.sys 3/27/2005 10:30:36 PM
Lycosa.sys 1/18/2008 4:51:42 AM
nvm62x64.sys 10/17/2008 5:01:06 PM
netr28x.sys 2/25/2009 11:02:09 PM
How To Find Drivers:

- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

Certain games are causing my pc to just blue screen randomly now (skyrim, BFBC2). I've been monitoring my gpu and cpu temps with afterburner and aren't noticing anything out of the ordinary.

A:BSOD after playing certain games. Not sure if overheating

A stray crash dump is not enough. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions . Attach the data with your reply post.

Also as you have doubt about overheating, report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Hi Since a few weeks, my Elitebook becomes very hot while playing games. (Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, Cities: Skylines, The Crew...)After getting really too hot to put my hand anywhere near the exhaust port, my laptop's screen shuts down.When I reboot the system after a while, everything seems to work again. Could it be that the cooling system doesn't manage to keep up with the heat my graphics card generates while playing these games? I've allready cleaned the vents, but the problem persists.The graphics card I'm currently using is an AMD firepro M4000.I've tried looking for solutions and even possibilities to upgrade my graphics card, but it seems the latest models use an AMD firepro M5950, so I'm not sure wether the suggested graphics cards would be compatible with my system. Can anybody help me with this? I've allways been very happy with my laptop, and i'd rather not buy a new one if this problem could be solved by replacing a part or another less extreme operation. thx

I realized that my graphics card (Geforce 6800GT)idles at 59C, but slowly builds up to 70C when I play a game. At this point, my mouse light starts to flicker, and freeze constantly etc etc. There are also chances of getting a nv4_mini.sys BSoD. My question is, is it normal for the 6800GT to go up 10C just by playing a game? It isnt even that graphic intensive (CS 1.6, Warcraft 3). Currently, I have one side of the PC case opened for more air flow. It lowered temperatures a bit (i use to have temperatures up to 80C) but it still doesn't seem to be enough. Are there any options besides buying fans?

A:Graphics Card Overheating while playing games

It is normal for temperatures to rise during a game but your temperatures are a bit high. You could remove the heatsink and fan, clean the old thermal compound off and reapply some Arctic Silver and reinstall the heatsink/fan to the graphics card. As long as your fan is capable of getting up to full song, your temps should go down. Anyway, it's cheap to try.

My graphic card could run every game until a month ago without any problems. But a moth ago it started to overheat on games like AC III and the picture was very laggy and the fan was making very loud noises, I`m not really a expert on computers so I`m here for a opinion on what should I do. Here is to understand the problem some pictures of my temperatures:

The first one is while playing Fifa 13, and I even adjusted my visual settings for best performance.
The second one is on my normal settings when I wasn`t doing anything.
Thanks to anyone who would like to give me some advice on what to do

I have a HP Probook 4545s with AMD A4-4300m 4 GB of ram and AMD Radeon 7420g.The CPU temp suddenly increases from 35 ?C in idle to 85 ?C in a few seconds and drops back again to 35.This is really annoying cause the fan gets really loud for a few seconds.Also when I use Skype,or playing games after 15-20 minutes it shuts down(actually it hibernates).When i turn it on again it shows that the max cpu temp was over 120 ?C .Also lately I started getting BSOD KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR - 0x0000007A.The laptop is three months old and it was used for browsing.
Any suggestions?

A:Laptop overheating,BSOD while playing games

HP laptops are well known for over heating , I had to send mine back to HP because after just 6months from new because it wouldn't stay on for over 5 minutes it just over heated straight away so I think anyone who has a HP laptop needs a can of compressed air to keep the fan and fans vents clean, HP website/ signs of overheating and using compressed air to clean the fan and vents so my advice would be before you deal with the error message clean the fan and vents so hopefully your laptop will stay on and not over heat and then you'll beable to run CHKDSK without the laptop cutting out half way through ( which would be bad for the CHKDSK process and the laptop )

Hello Sevenforums i got this problem playing high performance games..

When i enter the following games (below) my graphic hits 75 - 85 celcius (what worries me is the world of warcraft... It's only on HIGH and it goes to almost 90 celcius)

World of warcraft (high)
Battlefield 3 (Ultra)
Guild wars 2 (Ultra)

I was reading abit about this problem on google and saw a person telling another one that was having the same problem as me that a PSU could heat up your GPU if it is just under your GPU..

- My PSU is not far from my GPU and the fan on my PSU is almost just up against my GPU so i kinda wonder can a PSU really heat up my GPU that much?

My cousin got a very tiny case for his pc, he got a gtx 560ti and hits 65 - 70 celcius and goes 50fps in stormwind with 60+ players around him and 200 - 250fps outside stormwind. in stormwind i got 20 fps and in world i got 60 - 100 fps.

I got a Evga GTX 580 1534MB myself and should be alot better then the gtx 560TI.. He also runs 20 - 30 fps higher then me in Guild wars (60 - 90fps) i am running 30 - 50fps..

Any help would help me.. I've updated my specs and i will upload a picture of the inside of my pc when i get back my phone tomorrow!

Battlefield runs smooth but my pc is overheating.

A:GTX 580 overheating playing High Performance games

A 580 draws more power, and delivers far more performance than a 560 so it is not thta stragnge it will run warmer.

75-85C for a 580 is normal. Now, if you simply want it to run cooler theres a couple things you should do.

1. Clean out your case with some compressed air. Clean all the fans, filters and inside of everything well to get rid of as much dust as you can.

2. Improve airflow.
You'll want to make sure you have plenty of cool air cioming in, and towards the GPU from the front of the case. make sure there are no wires etc that can obstruct the airflow.

3. And lastly, you can use a program like eVGA Precision or Afterburner and create a custom fan profile. I have mine set to ramp up on the slope type settings. At 70C its running the fan at 60% which keeps it much cooler than the default speeds. Never really goes over 65-70 under heavy load.
Just depends on how cool you want it to run, how much airflow you have now, and how much noise you are willing to add to your PC. Faster fan speeds do improve temps, but increase noise a good deal too.

Also, on framerates.
You must consider the game settings used, as well as resolution. If hes running a lower resolution, it will be easier to get hifgher FPS with less for example.

Also, depending on your monitor, Vsync should be used.

heres why.
Lets say your monitor is 60hz. This means it can only display 60FPS, no matter what. If your GPU is drawing 10,000 FPS it doesnt matter. Only 60FPs gets displayed on the screen... Read more

Hi, I've recently upgraded my computer, here's the current spec:

CPU : Intel Core2Duo E6850 3.0GHz

Motherboard : Intel Classic Series DG31PR

RAM : Kingston 2GB 667MHz

HDD : 160GB

Video Card : ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT

PSU : 450W

Everything's fine except when I play games like NeverwinterNights 2 and Half-Life 2: Lost Coast. The computer suddenly hangs and the screen blanks out after about 5-6 minutes everytime I play those games. The computer cannot reset, I have to manually turn off the power and turn on again to restart. What is the problem? My friend says it could be overheating. My idle computer temperature is around 66-69C. Is this normal? If not, what should I do?


A:Sudden crashes while playing games...overheating?

I think the temp is too high and while you play games it will raise. did you also upgrade the cpu fan? Idle temp for intels should be 40 to 45 C.
check heat transfer paste, fan, maybe the psu gets too hot and warms up the whole desktop?

Hello, I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

A:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.

A:BSOD mostly while playing (Dell XPS 8700)

Apologies for the delay, do you still need help with the BSOD's?

Read other 10 answers

Hello, I had a XPS 8700, an old model to be honest. It had a GT635 1GB and an i7 4770k, 8GB RAM etc.
So, I've asked before in a few websites, including here about upgrading. I've bought a GTX 1050 2gb, and only that. I still have the MoBo from Dell and the processor that came with the computer.
So, from the day I bought the video card I'm suffering from a problem which I believe that is hardware related, because I have already tested almost everything. The upgrade was a perfect hit, I'm running almost every new game on favorable settings and perfomance. But the real problem is, in every game, even on the games which don't require high hardware, I'm suffering from stutters, freezes that occurs all the time and have a duration of 1 to 2 seconds. They happen every 5 seconds of playtime, and I've asked in more than 3 websites since the two last months (when I upgraded the GPU.) 
I don't think the GPU is the problem as I've tested on another computer and didn't have any problems. So I think it is related to my computer. Last week I ran dell complete diagnostic program and it didn't find any problems. Nothing is overheating when I monitor the temps. CPU Usage is normal too. Memory isn't the problem either, so my last resort is to ask here, and I hope you guys can help me. I've always been satisfied with Dell, and they support for upgrades. So I hope we can solve this.

Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.

So I recently opened my CPU because it was lagging and I thought maybe a little clean up might do the trick. So I softly brushed the drivers inside the CPU to get some dust off. However, when I turned on my PC, it seems that whenever I watch videos or play games, a loud crackling sound comes out from my speakers. I don't know what is causing this.

I have tried disabling my drivers (sound and display) but to no avail. However, if I mute the volume on my sound driver, the sound disappears. Which lead me to the conclusion that it might be a conflict of sound and display.

Since the problem only occured when I opened my CPU and cleaned it, it might also be a wiring problem or something.

Can someone help me on this?

It's greek to me but now I'm jumpy about such things as my sons penchant for high speed running in "carnivores" game.

Should I be concerned?

A:Overheating?,,,, Games?

Well, some games can cause the CPU to work harder, I think, as the newer games demand a lot ,ore.

You can do some things. Like cleanout the startup list. They're the programs running 'behind the scenes' so to speak.

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, RAM may play a part. Make sure you have a useful amount. What CPU is it?

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

I had no any problems playing Dota 2, even at highest options.

Then, we needed to take a picture of the table, we needed to remove the monitor, we moved the computer a bit and once we took the picture of table, we connected the monitor to computer, nothing was wrong.

But after i start playing Dota 2, PC suddenly shutted himself down and said GPU overheat stuff. I dont know what to do and my english is bad, sorry about that.

AND PLEASE, DONT TELL ME THINGS LIKE "Your graphic cards is not enough for Dota 2", I SAID I HAD NO PROBLEMS BEFORE WE DID THAT ABOVE. And im sorry if i created this tread in wrong place.

A:GPU overheating when playing Dota 2

When you moved the PC....you could have bumped it enough to unseat the GPU. Open the case and make sure it's fully seated in it slot. Then make sure that the GPU and the PC for that matter is free of lint and dust....inside the case and from all the fans and hardware. Use a can of compressed air to blow out all the slots and tight areas.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Your reports are not definitive and educated guess says that this is the cause of your problem
What is the asushwio.sys file?
Make a system restore point and then uninstall the associated software or update driver.

Last summer I was downstairs on my pc connected to an ethernet to the router. Internet was great no problems really.. I have a twin brother who is upstairs and he used wireless he lagged alot and he only had problems if I was on my computer and that went on for a while. I have a grandfather who sat infront of me while I was on my pc and I couldnt do it so I moved upstairs but I didnt have a wireless pci adapter for my pc I had a wifi adapter which you plug in the wall to wirelessy connect to the router downstairs and I just put my pc's ethernet into the wireless adapter. I used that for a little bit until I couldnt take the high ping I was getting in game servers forcing me to just move my pc in the corner of my room and I havent been on it since. I have been playing ps4 using a wireless connect to the router downstairs. I have connection problems off and on but not every day. I today just got back on my pc and I am expieriencing constant lag and disconnection from games and discord. My router is the NightHawk AC1700 ,my Adapter is a tplink adapter. What can I do to increase my internet speeds I just dont want so much lag and horrible ping when I play my pc games with my friends.. and a reminder my router is downstairs with the modem.

Hello All

I have an HP Pavilion p7-1254 (at least started as that, had some stuff upgraded, explained below), AMD A6-3620 2.2Ghz Quad Core with AAHD2-HL board; save you the time of looking it up if needed. What happens is the system with will just freeze. Occasionally the audio that was playing with stutter infinitely like a skipping CD. Rarely I notice the system will stutter once or twice before totally freezing, happens in a couple seconds. But mostly, it just stops. When it freezes, the only option is to hard reboot.

I have had this problem for quite some time, probably about a year or two. At first I really didn't notice any consistency in the crashes, seems totally random. Some times it would freeze while browsing any random page, be it videos, forums, ad ridden or ad free. Any browser as well; Chrome, Firefox, IE. It also crashes when playing some games although not other games that have higher requirements; e.g. Guaranteed to crash, probably within 10 mins, if I play '8-bit Boy' on Steam (about as low res as implied) but I can go on 4 and 5 hour binges on Elder Scrolls Online or Skyrim with no crashes. I have recently noticed that YouTube videos (any video) is a guaranteed crash within a 20-30 seconds.

I have tried everything I have been able to find to do, to try and fix this issue; but none have worked. So far the hardware parts that have been replaced with new components are the RAM (now 2x4GB GEIL Enhanced Corsa PC3-12800), HDD (now 2TB WD Cavi... Read more

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

SP1 isn't installed, please do the following:

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on.

I've been getting a couple of BSOD lately and at first I thought it might be b/c my heat sink needs cleaning (which I'm gonna try to do next week), but I also recognized that it usually happens when I'm watching a video in my Browser, so it might also be that. The stop codes I've been getting are 0x00000116 and 0x0000009f, the last one more often.
My drivers should all be up to date, I checked them all last week. My Windows Updates are also kind of up to date, meaning I updated about 3 weeks ago.

Going through the files I uploaded I noticed that some bits are in German (my computer and I are German) so if you need translating I'd be more than happy to help!

Hello! I have an HP Omen 15 Gaming Laptop and my computer has an overheating problem. Before I realized this i thought that my lack of performance in games even with low settings was just due to the laptop not being able to run the games but now I know that its due to the overheating. The laptop gets very hot and the fans get very loud causing me to lag in games with low settings. I play on a regular desk but I had to put four pencils under my laptop to allow the fans to breathe. This helped, but I shouldnt have to do this. Does my laptop have to be exchanged for a new one? Or is this a regular flaw in most HP laptops? Please get back to me as quick as possible, thanks very much!

Let me preface this by saying that it has happened before, but that was an overheating problem with some old software stopping the fans. Now it's back and it's when I'm playing fifa - usually about half an hour into it.

Also sometimes it is a BSOD, sometimes the graphics and audio freeze with the screen showing a glitch type pattern.

When ever I start up a game my laptop shuts itself off after a short period. I'm almost positive it's overheating because the computer feels warm when it shuts off (it always feels warm but it never shuts off unless I play a game). I played games without this problem for 6 months and then it started shutting off. I had the motherboard and CPU replaced proffesionally. It worked again for a week or two then it started shutting off again. I haven't started up a game since it shut off the 2nd time after the problem started up again. I think the fan might be the problem. When I first got the laptop it would blow very powerful. Now it only blows sometimes and it's not very powerful. When I had the CPU and motherboard replaced they had to send it back because the fan still didn't work. When I got it back the fan worked again but it wasn't as powerful as it was when I got the laptop but it let me play my games without shutting off on me for a week or two like I said before. I heard about Speedfan and I downloaded it.

Hey technicians!

I'm from the Netherlands so my english might contain some bad grammar but I'll do my best.

So i've always been in a position where I cannot really afford a decent pc. I've had this one for a couple of years, but updated shit along the way.

I on accident fried my motherboard once, so pc shop put new one in. I had been getting bsod sometimes, after that I also got a new hard drive ( fresh windows) then a new ssd ( fresh windows ) updated everryhing, got nice cable management so no overheating since no dust. CPU doesnt go higher the 60c and vid card wont go higher then 70c.

Now here is the thing, I think with the heavier games I get BSOD but I've got no clue where it is coming from!!
I switched around my ram, checked all cables. And now I got to the point where I just wanna smash shit with a hammer!
I am thinking ( Might be completly dumb but whatev):

Not anough power ( can that cause bsod? )

Hello hello,

I just recently built a tower for my Christmas present to myself, and being an IT I thought I understood all the components that should go into a system, and I did extensive research into what components should go together and what were the best (affordable) items to put into a PC. So after research I purchased the components, slapped everything together and turned it on. Ran EXCELLENTLY. Everything was flawless and I even got a PC Benchmark program and got a pretty high score. I spent all day installing all of my games I own, and at the end of the night tried out Starcraft 2, went to options, turned everything to the highest settings, highest resolution. Started the Campaign, about 1 minute into gameplay my tower dies. Oooohhhhkay... try it again, gets about 30 seconds further into gameplay, dies again. I tried a different game, dies again. Every game I tried (with the highest setting) would die after a couple minutes of gameplay. I am 90% positive its an overheating issue because the times it would take my tower to die would differ, and then the tower would also turn my display off, while still being on, and would turn itself off (roughly it would take 5-10 seconds). This tells me the tower has indication its too hot and would turn itself off, instead of just powering off the exact second it hits an error.

I ran every game on high settings because I know I can run them on high, the resolution I am not quite sure of because I am using a 23 inch LED TV, not a ... Read more
