Hi, I am having problems with my screen suddenly going blank and not every recovering until hard reboot. I suspect my video card is overheating, but I am not sure. It is extremely hot to the touch (though I never really had a reason to touch it before), but sometimes it will work fine. I am hoping it is the video card because everything else in the computer is new as of December besides the graphics which is more than a year old. Does anyone have any ideas?
I've cleaned the card and it still has been going blank. I put my roommates extra 8600 in to see if it will perform ok. So far it has not crashed on me. I guess it may be time to upgrade to a gtx260. I really wanted to wait for the price drop when the 400 series is out. Any suggestions?
