Thanks, gang!I looked into the matter - cleaned the vents thoroughly, removed and re-seated the card, uninstalled the drivers AND chipset completely and installed the set from the manufacturer...and it still crashed; however, I put a desk fan set on high blowing directly on the card and it was fine, so yeah, there's some weird serious heat going on there. Stupid Dell piece of shiiiiiiiiii.....Well, at least I can play now. I just have to freeze my feet while I'm doing it! :-) Although I WILL say that an aux fan is most likely doable, and a hell of a lot cheaper than a new card...and definitely better-priced than a whole new computer! Sigh...wtb good-paying job.
