Computers only need a format, if something is wrong with the software. That has hardly anything to do with the fact that it's electronics.
The problem: it's either a hardware issue or a software issue. Reinstalling the OS solve software issues, so if it helped for 1 month and 10 days it seems not unlikely that it was software. But still it's possible it's a hardware issue and you need to replace the graphic card (or even the whole motherboard if it's an integrated video).
You didn't give enough info to tell anything sensible. Can you tell more, such as:
- what's the exact error you get about the graphic card
- when do you get it
- how can you be sure that there's no overheating
- what info is on the blue screen
- what event log tells about the error
My laptop gives error about graphic card. At first it gave messages in an hour about six times. I was so busy with my lessons and I delayed to go to the service. Then I faced with the "blue screen" and immediately I took to the service. They formatted my laptop and problem solved. But the only statement is "It's electronics. Sometimes computers just needs a format."
Then, one month and ten days after the service, it started again. There is NO over-heating. I'm an architecture student and I need a working computer. Not a netbook. I don't even draw 3D drawings, only 2D. What's working so hard the graphic card? It's my exam week and I don't want another one week technical service and format.
Can you please help me? Thanks.
