I have had my computer for a few years now, and I recently ran a windows update which I had neglected fr a long time.  Since that time, my video card runs very hot (fan running at max speed every few minutes) while doing tasks as simple as watching a youtube video. My drivers are current, and I have made sure that no background processes are running when I experience this.  While idle, my card sits at a normal temperature.


I am wondering if there is some way I can troubleshoot this problem.  I have tried finding answers for a while now but haven't had any luck, so I figured I'd try the AMD forums.


I don't even know what other information would be necessary to provide, and ideally I would like to not revert the windows update.  Has anyone else encountered something like this, or have any suggestions as to what could be causing it?


Thank you.
