I dunno whether it's my processor's noise or my GPU's Noise. But Since September 2011, My GPU makes really loud noise after playing 15 minutes of ANY GAME! literally ANY game! It all started when i installed the game Dead island and when it happened, i assumed that it's probably because the game is too heavy for my system. However, after playing much much lighter games ( like age of empires 3 for eg.) , i came to the conclusion that there's absolutely something wrong with my GPU or CPU and I think the cause is probably because of a particular driver or software that caused it, coz I think there's a high chance that it's not even a hardware issue since there's no noise when am doing normal tasks on my laptop, but it happens only with games now.
Laptop Model: Acer Aspire 6930
GPU : 1GB GeForce 9600M GT
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @2.00 Ghz T6400
Ram: 3 GB ddr2
Windows 7 ultimate
and I got Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 installed and i don't think it's kaserpsky that's slowing my system down.
HOWEVER, I think there's something inside my system that I need to remove, like basically any process that runs heavy such as spyware/virus or watever :S. It might as well be a bug from my windows updates, I dunno... sorry for complicating this lol..
PS: after doing a bit of googling, I found something about blowing compressed air inside, would that help? :S
It is normal for an Laptop to be noisy after some years, it would be recommended to use compressed air inside to blow the dust away, so the fan won't need to turn really fast to cool your parts inside.
Try and use GPU-Z and MSI Afterburner to monitor your computer's temps, so you can see what is wrong or what is overheating in your computer.
thanks for the info
I currently don't have access to the compressed air. So in the meanwhile, am gonna do what u told me. I will leave 4 things open: the game, task manager, GPU Z and MSI afterburner and leave the task manager at the process tab (correct ? )
i will wait till fifteen minutes then observe which process that's using alot of memory eh?
but do i need to do any settings to the Core clock / shader clock ( whatever these are, but it sounds like overclocking my GPU to me..) do i leave them at default ?
