So I was playing some game, come several hours, and then the screen suddenly glitched with pink pixely blocks randomly popping up, like a missingno. I immediately checked the inside of my pc and found the the graphics card is heating up like crazy, so I panicked and shut it off. I let it cool down for a while then turned it back on, and this happens.
I am still able to log in to my desktop, but it's somehow stuck to a lower resolution with the same screen tearing as pic related. Checking speccy, I noticed that the GPU's temp counter is missing, and the monitor has a refresh rate of 1 hz.
I've been able to play said game for a couple of days now, and this has never happened before.
What is happening and how big of a problem is this?
