This vbios is only to fix random fans issue. Graphics driver crashing is sadly driver being the issue.

thomasgo.unterwegs, for your own issue open an own topic. This thread is not for general troubleshooting but the "Fans Randomly Turning On issue" only.

Hello I also have a MSI 970, suddenly when just browsing or PC in idle my fans ramp up very loud for sometimes 10 or 20 seconds than back to normal. I think its because it hits 60? ? I don't know but its annoying...

My S/N : 602 - V316 - 130B1505054102 , I am unsure what bios to take or how to fix...

Current bios according to live update : NV316MH.186

NV316MH.186 is the latest vbios for your card and not affected by the Fans Randomly Turning On issue this thread is about. Open an own topic for your issue and there add the temp the fans do speed up.

Hello, Ive got a new MSI GTX970 Gaming 4G and I was curious if I need a bios update or if I have the newest already. Nvidia Inspectors says Bios is: 84.04.36.00.F1

Thanks!

For just a vbios update please open an own thread and there add the S/N and current vbios saved to file. The numbers provided are useless and no real vbios version.

Because you don't have the issue this thread covers. Stick to your own thread.

I received my new GTX 980 2 days ago and everything was fine. Now today some problems started at first I only noticed that windows is kinda "laggy" when moving windows and random actions. Then I played some games and I had really crappy frame rates like 20-30fps in Dota2, Diablo3 etc. At least in D3 there are some spikes to 60 fps...

I searched and searched and then I noticed that during gaming only one Fan seems to spin. The one farther from the slot spins and the one in front (nearer to the connectors) does not spin. And thats how I ended up in this thread. Now I checked the SN of my card and its not listed.

Do I have a different problem or...?

SN is 602 - V317 - 180B....

Your problem has nothing to do with this thread's random fan starting problem. One of your fans does not work what might be indicating a bad fan. Open an own thread for checking.

This is totally not related to the issue of this topic. Next time open an own topic.

Stopping the fans below 60?C is the Zero Frozr key feature of this card... So yes it's normal.

I just got a GTX980 gaming 4G. And have a problem with one fan, the card is like 40? but one fans keep turning on spinning slowly though and nothing in no software reports it spinning.

I have checked S/N and doesnt need a bios update...

Most of the time it is also the only fan spinning while playing some games but I guess thats normal but the fan turning on in idle while the GPU is 41? is not normal...

What should I do ?
