View Full Version : G46VW Cooler always running at maximum speed

Few days ago I got critical windows 8 error: DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION.

After that, I noticed that cooler always running at maximum speed, no matter what temperature is, is it plugged or not.

Computer model: ASUS G46V (G46VW).

Any thoughts?

Yep what are you temps CPU GPU, my guess is that one or the other is very high causing your Fan to try to cool it off. If your in warranty RMA if not Repaste
You can use Hwinfo64 (http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php) to check what your temps are

You don't have an integrated one, the Intel built into your CPU is disabled, so you are running the generic MS Video software. Install the latest posted video drivers posted on Asus Support Downloads (http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1)

You still haven't let us know what your GPU and CPU Temps are? Mother Board controls fan speeds, as temperature rise the fans spin faster.
If you are having excessive temps and you continue to use your Note Book you are going to damage more parts
