i cleaned my pc yesterday but not inside the cpu.after plugging all the wires aand turned the pc on,i noticed that i cant run my games.the graphics turned into white-gray-purple,having strange colours.by that time my graphic card is already the latest version.but it worked all the time until yesterday.i rollbacked my gc driver and it worked.i reinstalled to the latest driver again and the same problem persist.i reinstall my driver again but to the previous version.now the graphics in game is all black but with sound.the worst,my pc hanged on desktop.could it be the gc in the cpu loosened or has dust?b4 this my sound card got loosened so i opened my cpu and tighten it.could it be that i loosen or made sometime wrong during that time.im using a rather old gc,nvidia riva tnt2.i believe its not overclocking problem.

so i opened my cpu and tighten it.

Remove it from the computer. Clean/blow out the slot. While it's out, check and clean the fan/heatsink, and reseat the card
