XFX AMD HD 6870 Fan/Temperature Problems

Recently I have discovered that when under a relatively heavy load, my fan on my graphics card will start to spin for a few seconds, then stop, and repeats that process over and over again causing my card to overheat and sitting around 100 degrees Celsius while doing nothing (the fan continues to perform incorrectly). This caused crashes the first few times and the other times was not able to be fixed until I shut my computer down, let it cool off, and restarted it. Sometimes that doesn't even fix it. I have looked around on forums and have not found a solution that works for me. I have checking that my drivers are up to date and even re installed them just to be sure. Is this a problem with an easy fix ?

Thanks for your time,

  1. Your fan on your card is probably dieng. You should replace the fan or get a new graphics card
