    But i believe that the card has gone bad because even when i use the driver install disc that came with it, it doesnt work. Also it worked for a year and 2 months then stopped. And i had games running 7 - 12 hours almost 6 days a week so i think the card is dead. But i will try these drivers you have supplied me.

    Last thing I can think of is gently remove that card, clean contacts (I use normally some paper, like a white piece of a news paper - if you whipe off the contacts and you see some black on the paper you may have found your problem) and reseat it again, taking care not to leave any residu on the contacts.
    If you feel unhappy to do this leave it to a repair shop.

    BTW
    Take some rest, you won't repair it by staying up..... ;)

    Would it just be easier for me to get a whole new graphics driver and power supply. Because that just what i want to do. @William B @bochane

    Sure.

    But I suggest to going to a repair shop, it is a small job, and you are sure you get a working computer!

    Let's know how things work out!

    Very sound advice from bochane. I remember you saying you didn't feel comfortable with even removing the graphics card so I agree a good shop it the place to go that way they can test out the card, and also rule out your power supply being deficient or unstable. It should not take long with a good tech I could do it in less that 30 minutes so i'm very sure you can find someone like that there. Good luck!
