Windows 7: Is my graphic card dying?

Is my graphic card dying?

Hey everyone,

I'm new to the forums and been searching here for my problems and they usually helped so far.Yet I have this new kind of BSOD by my graphics card,9800gt.It's become so unbearable with all the crashes,that I think it's dying.I don't get any problems while I'm using windows only,however,whenever I start to play a game,after a while,whole screen goes black,comes up again,and weird colored dots suddenly appear everywhere in the screen,and I get this BSOD everytime,sometimes,even after the BSOD Windows stays like this.So,is it time for me to get a new graphics card or am I doing something wrong? I just reinstalled win7,fresh and latest drivers,and haven't overclocked(I guess) my PC for a year and a half.

Thanks in advance

My laptop video card used to be fine a few months ago, but in July, it started acting weird. I used to play games on this laptop and it was running fine. I will have to say that the most hardcore game I ran on this laptop would be Call of Duty 4, but other than that, it was just those free...
