    Hello denizens of pF,

    I was playing the Asheron's Call emulator, and then some green squares appeared everywhere, and my computer stopped responding. I was listening to music via iTunes at the time, and the audio slowed down and became all distorted. I rebooted, and when I launch certain programs (video games), the squares appear again and things stop responding. I'm also getting many errors about display drivers crashing, other NVidia programs crashing, etc.

    My question is - is this just my GPU dying, or could something else be going on? Tomorrow I will unplug the GPU and see if everything is kosher on integrated.

    Thank you for your consideration,
    dill

      Well no shit, Captain Obvious.

      Pull the GPU and run on integrated. Let us know what the results are.
