K thank you very much ill download it right now i appreciate your help! Btw i just noticed you live in Vegas to lol nice. I went to the Collective Soul concert at the Hard Rock last night there were so many hot chicks OMG! lol The music was great to :P
Well now i ran into another problem. Ill go into the configuration and i change change the oc settings and whatever (which i didnt) but i dont have the option to switch my fan speed. It doesnt even give me the tab for it... Do you possibly know of any other software that can switch it?
wait, on Rivatuner you can't change the Fan speed.. im SURE you can. are you going to the right area?
there should be a bar with the fan.. you can adjust the slider up or down, you may have to click a check somewhere to allow you to slide the slider. but you should for sure be able to adjust that..
or even easier, less crap everywhere. download the eVGA Precision software.. you might not have a eVGA card.. but oh well. it should work fine, I've heard it work with peoples BFG 9600GT's. Give this a try. very easy to add fan speed, and OC the card. but be careful with Overclocking. ask questions first, don't risk frying the card Sir.. Mkay.
also how was the concert. do you live in vegas. I'm in Henderson. and yes this city has WAY to many very hot girls. it's a little depressing because there's so many. and I only get a few a month. lol but I do pretty well.
update your system specs so we know ur stuff.. so I didn't have to guess if you have a eVGA card.. ya know!
Yea i live in Vegas its right on the border of henderson. Well you get more girls than me lol and the concert was great there were two chicks making out for the cameras and me and my friends were chillin on a bridge over the pool and they stopped right in front of us and had their back turned talking (btw they were in bikinis) my friend was like wow my camera sucks so i naturally pulled out my phone and snapped a couple shots :P. There were like 3 or 4 girls grinding a pole right before the concert and the bartenders were hot (and in bikinis :P). It was really fun! Yea let me also update my system specs real quick for you lol.
Oh yea and btw... Once AGAIN it wont let me switch my fan speed. I dont know if its because its a laptop or what but its aggravating me.
Processor: Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo P8600 @2.4GHz.
Ram: 4 Gigs
Motherboard: COMPAL JHL90 (Chipset intel PM45)
OS: Microsoft Vista Home Premium 64bit
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT 512MB
Ya I'm on Stephanie and the 215. thats crazy. how old are you man?
sounds like a pretty good concert. post that picture you're saying you took.
So did you actually try Precision.. and I'm pretty sure you should still be able to turn it up even though it's a Laptop. I don't see why not. or doy uo possibly have a cooling pad that you sit it on while using it?
Im 18 i live on bermuda and St. Rose. I tried precision and the fan area was faded out. I tried clicking different buttons seeing if that would help and it didnt. I dont know why its not letting me lol. If i can figure out a way to upload the pic without having to buy a cable i will lol. Ill probably just use my webcam to try and get a good pic of it. And ive been thinking about a cooling pad but some people have said some bad things about them thats making me hesitant. like it messed up their computer etc. But it was probably more likely their fault than the pads.
to add a picture you can hit the prnt screen button right of F12 on the keyboard. then go into paint and paste it in there.. you can put a screenshot into paint, save it, and upload it. I just did it. and here's my precision and here's the button you click.
See how it says auto next to the fan, and the slider is greyed out. Click that icon that says Auto with the lights on it. when you unckeck that you can turn up the fan, other than that I'm not sure what your doing wrong. or if it's just your card.
ok, so I found some info, it's some Stupid info and just is one more thing to add to Nvidia being stupid, cheap, and cutting corners. If you've purchased a New 9600GT, there's apparently a second edition of the Newest wave of 9600GT's and the 8800GT's that are the same, but different. they can't be adjusted. the Fan's only have 2 wires coming off them and into the cards board. those 2 are for power, and if there is a third wire, thats for speed control. Nvidia and many many company's that make the cards are only using the 2 wires and are not allowing fan changes. the fan should get louder during games when it's needed, and slower when it's not needed. if thats not happening then maybe its' a driver issue.
So basically how new is your 9600Gt, when did you buy it, what brand is it.
and if you don't mind opening your case, you don't even need to touch anything, but look and see how many wires are coming off of the fan. like it's main power wire should have 3 wires. or 2, if you see only 2 wires from the fan, then thats bad news.
Well i saw 3 wires lol. Yellow, Black, Red. I dont know why it wont let me change the speed then lol let me see if i can find any driver updates (if i can remember how to do it) Ok i went into device manager and looked for driver updates on the graphics card and cpu couldnt find anything else that looked like it could have a difference. And there were no updates.
