Dell xps 2010m display corruption and then lock up - what causes

\015 My laptop has started to pixilate, if that is the right term, areasof the screen have lines or dots and just after that you can bet the thing will lock up.\015\012\015\012I am guessing its overheating but the fan works - could it be graphics card memory?\015\012\015\012Also I noted an earlier post said they had replaced the graphics card - how is this done and where do you get one from?\015\012\015\012Kev\015

Lets see what card is in there, it might be as simple as a driver or the refresh rate may be set to high. See what the refresh rate is set to, step it down to 60 and lets see what happens. I am Gymowner for the sake of communicating because we aren't in a live chat, I may lose you, so at least lets be sure we both can find each other Kevin, ok try tyat first, then get the latest driver for your card. My wife and I are both gamers, so I have had this problem myself, and I want to eliminate the card first
