Well its a crappy MadFX5500 i think, and just all of a sudden the fan stopped!!!! I let it cool down for a couple of days and now it makes a nasty scraping clunking sound like the fans gettn ate up by the metal but everything looks fine, i dont know, but it doesnt function.
Ummm and I just regularly installed opengl i guess i installed the software drivers, whatever it came with to install so.....probably.

Is there anything i can do. Im hella far on my pong prog and i cant put any more images in the prog without the comp slowing down a great deal...

my suggestion -- go to bestbuy and get a new gpu. don't have to get top of the line (probably will want to upgrade when vista comes out anyways, so why blow all that money now?) but a decent one and install that. costs more than you want i'm sure, but if you still are under warranty then i would say get dell to replace it.

but yeah, you can't really live without the gpu. :-\
