Ok i know there is no way for you all to know for sure the answer to this but i would like your best guess. so the other day i was surfing the web and bent down to pick something up, when i looked back up at my screen is see these moving red scribbles across my screen. i have never seen this before so i immediatly pressed my power butten down for the 4 seconds to turn it off right away. i wait a few minuntes to try turning the computer back on and when i do i see more crazy artifacts like this(i cant remeber exactly what they looked like). so once again i turn my computer off. the next time i try turning it on everything has a blue tint(i mean everthing even the graphics card bios posting) i let it boot into windows and eveything is still blue. so once again i turn my computter off. the next time i try to turn it on i hear a long beep followed by three short beeps. i looked through every page of the stupid motherboard manuel and i could not find what these beeps meant, so i figured i would take my graphics card out and take a look at it. i took the heatsink off to chech and see it the gpu had burnt out. it all checked out. i saw a pretty thick layer of fine dust all over the card and grab a microfiber cloth to clean it off. i put it back in the computer and turn it on and it boots up perfectly and have not seen a artifact since.( i have played battlefield 2 for about 3 hours since) this was sunday. this brings me to the question, is my graphics card dying or was it just the dust completing a circut of something? p.s. my graphics card really hasn't been overclocked in half a year there is just something wrong with my sig. and it wont ket me change it.
