Limited Use

It seems my video/graphics card in my PC might be dying...and if so, I will need to get a new one soon. My school semester starts in less than a week so this is not really the best time to be having a computer fall out of service.

Until then, I will be using my laptop on the Internet and hoping that there is not critical stuff on my PC that I need. Such is life. I hope to get some answers to this whole thing later today but for now, the weather is cool and dry so I am thinking some yard work is in order...

Update: Haven't fixed it permanently but was able to find a work around. I turned the Hardware Acceleration all the way off, so no gaming (not that I do much) and not too much video editing for a while but hopefully this will not be a long term fix...

Why do you think it is dying?

Because my monitor keeps clicking/flickering, and when I came home the other day, it had an error message in reference to my video driver/card. The clicking and flickering eventually crashes the entire system and I think it is either overheating (from being on all the time) or just done for some reason or another....
