GeForce Quadro 3700M might be failing? Help. Card may be shot
I use my computer mostly for school work and miscellaneous internet surfing, but occasionally I play Startcraft II. Recently, my computer just started shutting down in the middle of games. More or less, the entire thing would freeze and the screen would go blank. I uninstalled and re-installed the game, did the same for the graphics driver, cleaned my entire computer hardware with compressed gas, and recently ran the Dell hardware diagnostic test. 60% Through the GPU test, the same shutdown happened. Am I to presume that my graphics card overheated one too many times and is shot? I have a Dell Precision M6400 that is about two years old and used daily.
