    Well randomly my video card f**ked up.

    I was playing runescape and all of a sudden my computer screen got fuzzy and started giving random colors and lines and then it went to the "Blue Screen of Death" and then restarted.

    I messed around with it for about 30 minutes and after about 10 times of trying and still giving me the fuzzy screen and blue screen of death, i gave up.

    Currently, I'm on my onboard graphics adapter.

    Can someone help me to tell me whats wrong with my video card? Did it just die?
    Do i have to get another video card?

    Sounds like it may have gone bad. I'd look into the warranty and try to setup an RMA if possible.

    It no longer has a warranty.

    reinstall the graphics drivers just in case, and make sure you clean your card's cooler.

    I have already dusted out my entire computer earlier and I will try reinstalling my graphic drivers.
