Bummer! My Graphics card is giving out...

I kind of thought it was the problem when my computer shut down all of a sudden a couple weeks ago, but tonight confirmed it. I was working in photoshop and it my computer just shut down all of a sudden a couple of times. Good thing it has a 3 year warranty because I only put it in about 1.5 years ago... GRRRR... smiley

Ouch! Some other day I used photoshop all day long to make layouts... In the end of the day, my photoshop simply refused to work!!! And my computer is also new, don´t have even 1 year! I hope you can solve this problem as soon as possible...

I called the manufacturer and they asked me to update the driver and it seems to be working better (no pixelating or screen freezing) and the fan on the graphics card doesn't seem to be comming on now. They have a ticket on it, so if it does go, all I have to do is rip apart my craft room to get at the computer and take out the graphics card to send back to them. They will replace it then. But what a hassle to get it out of the computer...

It´s better to hope that all will turn out well without needing to send it back smiley I am hoping so smiley

If it does fail, better while it is still under warranty. If it is a desktop, it really isn't that hard to remove the video card.

Yeah, I've built enough computers to almost know where to put things blindfolded. The problem is all the wires, moving the desk & and the bookcase loaded with craft supplies and books... Not looking forward to that if the thing does go kaput.
