Re: Faulty GPU or CPU? (overheating?)
if it is overheating the only thing you can do is make sure that the fan's are blowing 100% and if that doesn't fix it get a cooling pad for it, preferably one with a fan. Other than that you can't really do much aside from putting new thermal paste on the heatsink.
