Secondly there were a bunch of stickers on it, but those seemed to contain ZERO relevant info. Other than that I couldn't find any other numbers that seemed relevant.
I tried updating my drivers the other day, after posting the question. For a while that SEEMED to have fixed it. But the next day in the middle of the night it crashed anyway.
So is this enough reason to actually blame the graphics card? You say I should just chuck it and I would be fine with that if it's actually the reason it's broke. But personally I'm not very confident about that.
1. if the graphics card has a name on it, tell me what that is.
2.Reason why I said get rid of it, if the vga card is having distorted colors and is doing any of the stuff daily.
That would normally indicate the graphics card is getting ready to die.
Thats why I said what I did, give me model number of the vga card and I'll do some digging around for you.
I'm going to assume the warrenty is out on your vga card.
If not tell me when you bought it and I'll find out for you.
Lastly I recommend you get yourself a new vga card.
ATI or Nvida you choose and you tell me how much you wanna spend.
Once I know that I'll work with you closely even by email if needed.
The ball is in your court.
