The video card is not using much power or much else of its features. I can see how a new tech may think it's software but if we have time we let them spend a day trying software fixes. It's an expensive lesson so we usually can't do that and swap the video card fast to save the cost of the lesson.
So, I've had my computer for over a year and half now and never had it crash or anything outside of the ordinary. However, a few days ago my GPU drivers crashed ( or so I assume ) as the screen started to just turn into a mess of rainbows and pixels before my monitor went black and I was fourced to hard shut down the computer. A few days passed and then the nightmare started. It just continues to do this to the point I can barely turn on my computer before it does this and now a new more scary symptom; The crashes are ending in blue screens. I have done every possible thing I can thing of i.e; I've rolled back drivers as far as possible. I've dusted out the computer and cleaned GPU and RAM off completely. I've system restored as far back as possible, I've even used a completely different profile on the computer its self. The only reason I think this is a software issue is the fact that the computer works fine in Safe mode.
I'm at my witts end with this thing and I don't really have the funds to take it to a tech store. Any help or advice is apreciated. Thanks ^ ^.
