about 3 months ago, my bro n i opened up my com to install sumthing n saw that a lot of dust had been accumulated on the vid card n so v took it out to clean it n saw that the fan on it had been broken n it wasn't werkin anymore. but the thing is i don't know from when it was broken. it could b from many months b4. so now, my vid card has no cooling capabilities. when i play normal games like NFSUG n some other 3d games, after abt 10 mins, the graphics become distorted. i opened up my com again n felt the metal part that was surrounding d fan n well, it BURNT my finger. is my vid card gonna die soon?
