I think my new laptop might be fried
Posted this in the wrong forum, move as necessary
I've had it exactly 3 days, and I've got a serious problem. It shipped with a GeForce Go 7800 GTX, which has been giving me some sweet performance. 1920X1200 rez on HL2 without breaking a sweat.
Something happened this evening. It has been in standby, with the lid closed. My wife opened the lid and appearently, instead of coming back up, the system started making a rapid clicking sound. The caps lock, scroll lock and num lock lights were flashing rapidly. The screen remained black. I held down the power button until the system shut down completely.
Since then, I've re-booted and everything seems to be fine. Except when I try to launch a game. I went from gettin 90 fps on everything to 10. I've tried several games. I can't think of anything else that could be an issue. Which is why I think something happened to the video card.
Does anyone know of any tests or diagnostics I could perform to confirm figure out the exact problem? GameGuru, I'm looking at you.
