Hello,

I have many video cards ATI 7000 pci with two heads in my customer computers and we have high failure rate
because they are overheating . We are using these video card to display only 2D application on two lcd screens.
I wonder if you can advice what can be done to reduce this failure rate to minimum .
Someone has told me that I can set the hardware Acceleration to minimum or to set the video driver to the standard video driver of Windows xp - vga mode and in it to decrease the heating
to minimum because the video card will work without extra features .
I will be great full to get other advices what to do to solve this problem .

Thanks in advance !

Ronen

Hello

as long as you are using these type of graphic cards you will need a better power supply which will be able to support all this power! and yes you can try to find a better cooling system for the cpu unit.

Thanks for your quick replay .
Your advice is not practical in my case because we have 2500 units in a same configuration .
I am looking for software solution or something else which could help us to lower the temperature
of the video card .
Thanks !

Hye,

You can try some overclocking utilities... Which will help you manage your graphic card characteristics and power consumption and even on cooling methods!
If you are using ATI cards you can try using ATITool software:
