Nope, it crashed again after 30 minutes. This time though, whenever I start the computer up it crashes after logging in. (I can now go past the windows logo and the log-in screen)
Even if it magically works again, anyone have any ideas to stop this from happening?
When you say it crashed again, you mean it went back to that black screen with the weird graphical glitch that happened the first time?
It working for a few minutes minutes and then crashing again and then not working for very long reminds me of when the fan in my sister's laptop stopped working. So I'm thinking that's a possibility. Broken graphics card fan. If laptop graphics cards have fans... *searching for pictures*
Edit: I haven't found a picture of a laptop graphic card with a fan on it so I'm guessing I was wrong. *researching a little more*
Edit2: Well... they don't have a fan attached to them like the ones in desktops do. So good luck fixing your problem.
