Hi George

You might want to run the diagnostic test on your graphic card . Do the commands below and I will get you the software

Click on type CMD in the Search box then press enter . Once the command prompt comes up type in the commands one at a time . Press ENTER after each one

To get the serial number enter this command

Code:
wmic bios get serialnumber
To get the model number enter this command

Code:
wmic computersystem get oemstringarray
