Hey, Could anyone tell me why my graphics card has all off a sudden started making my computer freeze?
I have a NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE graphics card and have used it for about a year and all of a sudden it freezes my computer when ever i load the internet/games

I have tried updated the drivers and downloading them again but no luck ...

Sounds like the card just went bad? Is it still under warranty?
