Is my graphics card dead?

Discussion created by pandasgorawr on Jul 26, 2015

I have an HP laptop with the 7750m card, and one day there were some problems with the driver so I tried to clean uninstall everything and reinstall the latest update. Ever since then, whenever I try to install the driver, my laptop completely freezes. No blue screen, just completely frozen on the screen it was on last, and the fan gets loud and the computer starts heating up.

However Windows can still detect the 7750m card, and tries to install the drivers for it through Windows Update, which I've had to block because it causes the same problem. Is my graphics card dead? Is there a way I can fix this? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
