My Asus GTX 460 graphics card got a crazy problem that the fan of it screams super loud when I tried to update its driver (220.127.116.1156) to any later versions (it was okay with later version until I got a blue screen mentioned below), and I checked the SmartDocter which shows the temp of it got max out!
All of this crazy problem was first introduced when I played the Civilization V video game, I got a blue screen error during the game then I rebooted my PC, this is where the problem starts!
I tried many things to find out what causes the noise, I originally thought that this could be a problem with Windows 7 64bit, so I tried login to my second OS - Windows XP 32 bit, the problem still remains, the fan continues run at full speed until I rolled back my graphics driver to original version that comes with the card when I bought it.
Now I can't really play any 3D games or my PC dies
very strange.... a driver update causing it to max out temps?
i guess maybe the problem might be in the latest drivers. you might likely try out previous latest versions of it. And can you elaborate more like does this problem occurs in only civilization v or other games or even if the gfx gives loud noise even on computer restart??
