CPU Overheat - Video driver

By gina0122 ·
I have couple of questions:

1- A diagnostic program report that my cpu is over heating. I change the cpu fan three times. Still over heating, what else can i do.I already chack power cord.

2- i found an updated driver for my video adapter,but after i installed it i still got the same old driver. i've tried everything with no luck such as remove driver from device manager, have window search for at bootup, have window search for it at adding hardware option.

3- how do i disable Double-Buffering.


Thank you

1-You need to detrmine why the cpu is overheating,check the power supply to see if the fan is operating,make sure their is proper ventilation. Graphics cards will cause heat to increase,heating is normal around 185 degrees,nothing is really to be done unless you want to add additional fan to case.
2-Download new driver to disk and then using Device manager add the driver manually,donot let Windows detect it.
3-Buffering may have to be changed by going to CMOS control panel and resetting,Use delete or F2 depending on operating system.

1-You need to detrmine why the cpu is overheating,check the size of the heatsink, as well as the fan, and the rpms of the fan,make sure their is proper ventilation. Graphics cards will cause heat to increase,install heatsink and fan on the video chip,also add additional fan maybe 2 to case.
2-First remove the driver in safe mode, copy the driver to disk and then using device manager add the driver manually,make sure it is a updated version.
3-To disable, edit MSDOS.SYS DoubleBuffer=1 changeto DoubleBuffer=0, or remove it, and remove the DoubleBuffer.bin file.

My advice is to ignore the diag program and verify for yourself what the temp is. Then verify that this particular temp is REALLY too hot for that particular CPU. If your BIOS displays temp values I would look there for the accurate temperature. If your CPU is truly too hot there can be a number of reasons....some CPU intensive programs may be running in the background. You may be overclocking, check your settings. And simply putting on a fan won't always work. There has to be sufficient airflow INTO the case. Try adding a larger fan to the case itself. Move any cables that may be obstructing airflow and secure them out of the way.

The advice above is good for the rest of the question.

when installing fans on cpu's be sure to add thermal grease to the cpu and fan for good heat transfer!! fyi
