Windows 7: Onboard Graphics Gives Out

Onboard Graphics Gives Out

I'm not quite sure how to describe the issue(hence the title) but through several diagnosis I think the Graphics on the motherboard is failing. There is no add-on graphics, the system is a HP Pavilion P6310Y, AMD Athlon 2, 6GB of RAM, 1 TB of HDD Space. The onboard Graphics is NVidia GeForce 9100. The PC is about 3-4 years old.

What is happening is the screen flickers and then either goes black or becomes a certain color. This happens whenever the PC is doing something involving alot of data(Scan Disk, Virus Scan, Email, Remote Desktop). The harder part is being able to tell whether the computer is crashing or after the graphics fails that the computer is still processing. I'm going go with a no because I have a feeling this could be an overheating issue as well.

I'm not quite sure how to tell whether or not it is.

Another question I have is if it is only the Graphics, would installing a Graphics Card solve the problem? Or will the rest of the motherboard eventually fail also?

Hello VMPAS am no real expert but sounds like the onboard is either overheating or on the way out.

Run this and see if you can make out a few temps for us.- If you touch (after grounding yourself does the top of the north or south bridge feel hot or is there any very hot smell coming from within.

New MB - use onboard graphics or old card?
I have a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-UD2H motherboard on order. The onboard graphics are AMD HD4200 which I believe are pretty good. I also have a nVidia GeForce 8400 GS which I bought when I upgraded to a HD monitor. Simple question which should I use when the new MB is installed?
