Well, in the middle of a D3 session, everything goes hazy, pixilated, chopped, and discolored leading to a blue screen of death that is also chopped, discolored, hazy, and pixilated. I can barely read the words. After a system restore, a good cleaning of the heatsink and fan, reapplication of thermal compound, it seemed to be working fine until 2 nights ago when it freaked out in D3 again.
This time the blue screen of death was up but clear and I was able to reload the game and play for a couple more hours. The next night, I had my laptop going for awhile just watching VODs of SC2. It was getting a bit warmer, but I still played D3 and it’s bad again. Freezing, barely running, blurry and scratchy and artifact-y even in safe mode. BIOS has screwy vision, too.
Unfortunately, I don’t have another monitor. Is my laptop done for?
