Hello all

I recently had a bit of a problem with my graphics card. Yesterday, I turned my computer on and nothing would come up on both my monitors. The light on them just blinked. The computer worked fine (I was even able to use it through LogMeIn), so it was a problem related to the monitors, hence, the graphics card.

I opened it up and cleaned a bit. Now I managed to turn it on successfully, except for some weird things that have been happening:

- I can't use Aero. I'm stuck with the Basic Theme on Windows 7. Can't change it to Aero.
- When running some fullscreen games, I get terrible framerate. Weirdly, when I switch to windowed mode, the framerate goes back to 100%.

Also, I'm a bit scared of turning it off again and not being able to turn it back on.

What can I do to fix these things? Is the graphics card really faulty, despite it having turned on again? What can I do to fix these problems I listed before?

Thanks in advance

EDIT - I did try reinstalling the drivers and nothing changed.
