Over the summer my computer overheated. Since then when I try and run graphics intensive software – games mostly, but some photo editing as well – it causes the computer display to go black. Sound continues and so does the gameplay or program that is running.
If I replace the video card would that fix the problem? The computer is a Dell dimension C521 with a 256 ATI Radeon X1300 Pro. Here is link to the dell page with the specs on it – not that I can make heads or tails of since it’s all Dell part numbers.
