    Is the GPU temperature going up correspondingly? If so, you probably need a new fan.

    no the gpu temp is fine... it is at 36*C/96*F and i can't post the pict because the file is not supported on techspot's website. how do i convert a clipboard file to a .jpg or.bmp?? or take a screen shor in these formats...

    What is the problem here is it just that your program says you need a new fan. Also when you said what temp your GPU was did you play a high graphics game before checking the temp. As this will work the GPU and you will be able to see how high the temp goes when ur GPU is actualy doing somthing.
