Is my almost decade old ATI Radeon 4870 video card finally failing?
Oh, I forgot to mention this too. I also had a few seconds power outage
a couple days ago in the early morning that my PC went off and then on
(no UPS' batter for it). It had no problems! The issue only happened
when the PC was manually turned off for hours and then manually powered
FYI. Earlier, I turned off my PC for about 40 minutes earlier for kicks,
and then turned it on. Also, video card's fan does seem to spin when
powering on the PC too since I felt its cool air coming out in my low
80F degrees room. No problems there. I'll need to try again, but for
hours. Maybe I'll retest tonight when I don't need to use this old PC.
