My laptop is a Asus g72gx
win 7 64-bit
Intel core 2 duo p8700 2.53Ghz
Nvidia geforce gtx 260m
6gb of ram
500gb harddrive

A while back my computer started to not be able to play games at the setting it originally could. I tried updating drivers, bios, even disassembled the computer to clean it. (which it really needed) The conclusion i came to is that i might have overheated the gpu and broke it. I can still play games at med-low setting while still keeping resolution at 1366 x 768 (native at 1600 x 900) and if the game's graphic setting are too high the screen will flash black(sometime to desktop) and back and an error in my task tray will say something like my video card has reset. Anyway to tell if it is an actual hardware failure and not a software issue from updates and whatnot? Also since this problem occurred when i go to install some programs my computer will freeze a few seconds after the autorun starts (sometime the installer) If you need anymore info just tell me what you need and necessary programs to do so.

thanks in advance for the help
