|(Vid card is a nvidia 8800 GTS)|
As of yesterday my trusty gaming box started bluescreening and rebooting with no warning.
Yesterday it started when I started up EvE. Graphic elements started flickering then the video was increasingly corrupted until it BSed.
Today YouTube vids started causing similar behavior.
Now, as I do the noob backup race against time, the video has scaled back to 640x480x4.
I haven't done anything weird to the thing lately. No software installs, driver upgrades, bizarre gaming marathons, etc.
I'm unemployed and really can't afford a new box. But it seems like just the vid card suddenly crapped out.
Any way I can confirm if it's hw/sw that y'all can think of? A new vid card I can swing. But if it's going to be a waste of cash I'm hosed.
