    Even when I load onto the desktop the fan on the graphics card still runs on the maxium rpm. Its so annoying. The driver doesnt seem to slow the fan down. What can I do? Also I did some testing, when i uninstall the cards drivers,then reinstall them, the card works perfectly,i tested further. I reset the pc and the card was still working perfectly. BUT however when i power down the pc and switch it on again the problem returns.

    Well, most likely it's a heat issue. If the fan is designed to run at variable speeds relative to the amount of heat generated, then there is likely not enough ventilation in your case. Can you describe how your cooling fans are arranged (how many, what position in the case, and which way they blow) so we can get a better idea of your setup. Also, post some specs on your system components.
