GeForce 7600 heating issue
Hi

I will try to describe my issue in details because i hope so it might help!

I have a 5 years old satellite A100-011,with Nvidia 7600 Go GPU. Recently i fixed a display issue which i used to, however, this time (two weeks ago) the laptop came back from the workshop with this heating problem. Which is the first time! The problem is the GPU. It is heating to almost 70c doing nothing!

Because of that I came back to the place i fixed the PC at. They checked fan and claim its fine and working! So, i give it a shot and tried the PC.

Obliviously, the problem is with the GPU only! Because the temp of the GPU (only GPU other tepms are normal) in idle reach around 65c (SpeedFan) and goes higher (65-67) while surfing the net! And that way too much for internet using! And the fan works when it reach 65c-70c!

The strange thing is when i run the PC after being on sleep mode the temp GPU (only)is 0c!!! It never works no matter what i do only after restart!

This way i cant use any high performance program because the PC gets over heated then shutdown.

Here is a screenshot taken while i was writing this topic.

Here is a screenshot of ZERO temp had been taken today

Note: I have tried the following:
1-cleaning the PC using comprised air.
2-BIOS (latest version) no fan control available
3-Power settings does nothing and there is no cooling method options
4-Software for fan control. Unfortunately nothing worked

I really dont know what the problem is! Since the fan seems to be working and the GPU is getting that hot without doing anything!

I hope i would fine help and answer here!
PLS Help!
Thanks
