    and the resaults from test with FurMark is not so good,
    Software FurMark
    Resolution: 1280x720
    Duration 8min
    max temp is 90°C
    GeForce 9600M GT/PCIe/SSE2 (10DE-0649)

    =======================

    the undervolting or overclocking of gpu is good idea for this problem (high temp) ?

    No cross-posting please. One thread is enough.

    apologies if this question has already been asked but is it possible to use GDDR3 ram in place of GDDR2. I have an Acer 5920g laptop whose graphics card is most probably gone (as I can see various colourful lines all over the screen. Can I buy ATI Radeon 256MB HD3650 DDR3 to work in it??

    That wasn't really addressed at you though ;)
    Your posts are fine since these are adding to knowledge base and as such shouldn't start any discussion & are in place in both threads.

    My comment was addressed at someone whose cross-post I deleted twice. Questions should be asked in one place only- otherwise they end up creating two separate discussions when people start answering.

    Try flashing the VBIOS to this: download - filecloud.io
    (Make sure you back up your old VBIOS, in case something goes wrong!)

    Likely your video driver was auto-updated. Newer Nvidia drivers appear to have problems with PCI-E link width power saving on G96 GPUs. This VBIOS disables that feature altogether, locking the link with at x16, which works around this bug.

    (Note: Previously I wrote that this is probably caused by a missing chip on the MXM card itself, but as more and more people are experiencing this issue, including people who had this feature work perfectly before, I'm now compelled to chalk this up to a driver bug instead.)

    The SBIOS patch should already take care of the Thrtl issue.

    The VBIOS is for the DDR3 version, so do not flash it into a DDR2 card. In another topic, however, I think I posted how you can patch your own VBIOS.
