  1. ok i turned my comp on and i noticed some icons had a black background around them and some places where text was supposed to be was replaced by a black bar an lots of things have have a black border around them and even whole windows when they pop up are black. I pulled out my video card and the fan isnt working... could over heating be the problem? any feedback would help.
