BSOD - Graphics Card Fan?

Capt HowdyCapt Howdy Registered User regular
One of the two fans on my graphics card went out, now I'm getting random BSOD. Is there a chance this could be the issue? The only thing of use in Windows logs is a shutdown due to a bug check. All the drivers are up to date, nothing new installed. Ran multiple anti virus, malware, and adaware programs. Can't read the .dmp file, sadly.

    run something like open hardware monitor to, err, monitor your GPU temperatures, especially while under load. I don't necessarily think that an overheating GPU would cause a BSOD, unless the driver is crashing it, but saying a fan isn't working isn't super helpful by itself, need to know how warm the GPU is getting.

    It was a Windows update triggering the bug check error. I finally figured it out. Thank you for replying though.
