Since I felt in the mood, I opened my case and I cleaned my computer. I saw some dust behind the heatsink of my video card, so I decided to remove it. Since I was unsuccessful at removing all of the screws, I rescrewed them in, and blew out any dust I could.
I inserted it back into my computer and now certain icons, and things are garbled and have wierd pixelization. For example, tabs and icons. I noticed that a wierd bios check runs every time I boot up and my system is also a little sluggish.
My main problem are these garbled icons and stuff. I didnt expect to get any problems from cleaning my video card, I DIDNT DO ANYTHING! (I built this computer from the ground up, so I really didnt think I would mess it up).
Now im worried.
Any ideas would reallllly be appreciated
oh yea and I updated my drivers too. no dice.
