So I've been playing FEAR and Rainbow Six Vegas lately and have run into a recurring problem. After about an hour or so of playtime, the screen glitches horribly giving a massively distorted image and the computer locks up entirely. When I restart there are several pixels that look like stuck pixels on the Splash Screen, and they remain there after Windows has loaded and I'm on my desktop. However, if I close the lid and reopen it, the pixels are all fine. I've had my laptop for about a year and 4 months at this point, and have had it overclocked at 480/1100 for about a year of that time. I'm just wondering if this could be a sign that my graphics card is dying or if there is some other underlying problem. Thanks for any help.
