Ok, so I opened the case and didn't really find much dust anywhere... So I start win7 and run DA:O to see if the temperature goes high. And then it crashes after half a minute (in the solid color way as always).

So I'd reckon as Slaymate said, that the ATI GPU is dying. Probably because I've been using it on extremely high temperatures for extended gameplay sessions when I first got the laptop.

Guess I'll just have to buy a desktop then? Oh well, it didn't really pull through in most games graphics-wise. Got to get ready for TES V anyway. :P

Only thing I regret is that it was pretty expensive (came with blue-ray reader) and now I can't even use it for multimedia purposes with the graphics card that it's intended for this kind of stuff.
