So 50% of you will hate me for purchasing an over-rated laptop made by Dell and 50% of you will be jealous for having a "nice" machine. I'm running Windows 7 and Ubuntu, half and half. I had my laptop running for about an hour today when suddenly the screen started bugging out... colors fading/fuzzy white noise type stuff. I restarted my machine a few times, and took the battery out and what not... after about an hour or letting the machine sit cold, I restarted it and it went back to normal Is this a sign of my video card going bad? The machine wasn't over heating or anything... Kind of happened spur of the moment.
