The integrated graphics card on my computer went bad, probably due the failed heat sink fan problem a few months ago.
So I got a new graphics card and it works again, but I had to re-install the OS. I asked one of my geek friends if it's possible that to corrupt the OS files with failed hardware. She said this could happen, but her specialty is writing software.
It wouldn't launch the OS after putting in the graphics card and none of the fixes worked. So I tried re-installing. I'm worried that the motherboard may be shot, but right now it seems to be working okay.
what do you guys think?
