When I got back my computer loaded up fine and windows gave me a notice saying there was a nvidia display problem. So I went to nvidia's site and downloaded the latest drivers for my GPU and the computer went fine as normal for 2 days. But last night right before I went to bed, the same thing happened. I turned it off and went to bed( I was about to do that anyway). Now whenever I turn on my computer, I have the same problems.
After a lot of google searching on my laptop(which I am using right now), I can't find much(I don't even know what to google). Usually all the results I get are threads made by people that start off with "whenever I load up WoW..." or "whenever I load up CS...". They also say that they have a lot of different colors showing up all over the place, not just red. I don't think it's a virus because of the inconsistency of it, and also all the threads I saw usually get replies saying that it's a GPU problem.
Does anyone know what might be my problem? I should note that my CPU has been really hot the last 5 months; it used to run just fine all the time, but now whenever I don't have the side panel of my tower off and a fan right next to it running on high, I can't run any games (even SC!) without it crashing. But even then it doesn't go through weird discoloration and blue screen of death, it's just the normal overheating problem of turning off suddenly.
I hate having to make a thread asking for help, but I don't really know what else to do. And all I know is when options are running thin, I can always turn to TL for help.
