Computer's graphics always glitch out in a crazy way

I'm trying to figure out a reason why my laptop's graphics always glitch out for pretty much every game I play, and if it's able to be fixed. My graphics processor is an ATI Radeon 3100 Graphics, with 1406 MB total graphics memory and 256 dedicated video memory. I have made sure it has updated drivers. Here is a link to how exactly the graphics glitch out in my games: http://imgur.com/J6hdN

  1. Is your laptop overheating?
  2. It does seem to run fairly hot when I play games and the problem occurs. Is there any way to more accurately check how hot it's running?
  3. Depending on the type of video hardware you might already be able to monitor the temperature.
  4. You can use HWMonitor to check temperatures.

  5. Thank you for the replies. My computer and CPU seem to operate at around 65 to 70 degrees Celsius when playing a game. That program didn't seem to give temperature readings for the GPU. My processor is an AMD Turion X2 dual-core with 2.00 GHz.
  6. If you have AMD/ATI video hardware the latest Catalyst driver might show you the GPU temp. If not, try gpu-z.
  7. I tried out that program and it doesn't seem to want to give any temperature readings for my GPU.

    I think your graphics card might be dying...
  11. That's what I'm starting to think. When PhilFrisbie mentioned overheating, I'm guessing my GPU might be damaged. In which case I don't believe there's any settings I can change to remedy the problem. Thank you again everyone for your replies.
