Video Card Overheated? (meaning toasted?)
Windows Vista Ultimate
2gigs of RAM
GeForce Go 7900GS
I understand that the laptop is not ideal for gaming, due to cooling problems. However, I've playing games that require high end graphics card fine for the past 2 years. Just yesterday, I decided to take the laptop to bed with me (wanted to finish a movie that I started). When I finished the movie I placed the laptop in standby and left it under the bed covers and went to sleep, also another note, I used the laptop for about an hour and a half before going to bed. Then today when I was gaming, my graphics in game were extremely laggy. Normally I would get a good 55-60 FPS, but now I get like 20-30 FPS.
So I'm wondering, having low FPS in game, is that a symptom of a card that has overheated and basically over? Or perhaps dust from the bed got sucked? Well any input would be much appreciated, thx.
Okay, after opening up my laptop, i cleaned out all the dust and all, but still low FPS problem, so I am wondering what could be the problem? Fan failure? But i hear the fan spinning. Could it be that the card is just fried to the point of no return?
