Re: Video Card Problem...or is it? Need Help...
Weak battery dont effect stat ups, only date and in case you have custom BIOS setting, then it retains them.
VGA card getting HOT, makes the image jaggy and strange, dont have ability to restart the system. yes, the CPU is with thermal DIODE and can restart machine, when getting hot.
try running your system, without hard drive, if it restarts, then CPU over heat as if it doesn't. re-install windows. as before Boot up, CPU and VGA runs at full speed because drivers aren't loaded. so, it will heat up and shutdowns (proving CPU problem)
