  1. ok so i have a nvidia geforce mx4000 and it is getting really hot, so hot infact that it burned me when i touched it. did this card come with a heatsink or something and should i get one or does it just run hot?
    after playing a game for about a minute my sound starts to go out, it just has no sound at all any more, i have tried changing the sound card to no avail.
    any ideas will help
