so i recently bought some additional ram for my relatively old pc, to at least have 8gigs available. of course i upgraded from win7 32 to 64 bit in the process. i let the upgrade run but it took longer than i thought, so i left it running when i had to go to work, thinking it would automatically go on standby after some time, when it was finished. i came back 7 hous later finding my pc asking me to enter the pc name, etc. while the graphics cards fan was running on full speed. after i got the system started up it turned out my pc could not recognize my graphics card anymore, only detecting vga graphics. also graphics detection programms cant seem to identify my radeon hd 5670 anymore, but it says, that when i have only browser running, fan is at 100% and the graphics card is at 106°. I immediately turned the pc off, and did not use it again since.
did i kill my graphics card by overheating it (and can it still be saved) or is it a software problem?
thanks in advance
