I have a Gateway FX 6710 desktop Running win 7 64 bit, 8 gig memory. Lately my screen has been going black, usually after several hours of running. When the monitor would time out and go off (set for an hour) I would wake it and several times now the screen would come on for no more than a second or two then go blank. I just cleaned out all the dust and did find the GPU was pretty caked up. I also cleaned all the fans and put everything back together (after confirming all fans were working). I do have a temp monitor and noemally it runs about 180f. Before cleaning it was around 190
Question I have is how to go about testing the graphic card to see if in fact its going bad. What other tests are recommended
Everything else is running as it should be
Thanks in advance :-)
