In the old days I had a core 2 duo laptop from Toshiba that had an SLI NVIDIA setup in it. I do not even remember the models.

The thing is that at that time I was experimenting with programming in C, OpenGL and GLSL making a rudimentary 3D engine, and I was at a level of learning the basics of the GLSL pipeline. Well, after a few days at it I accidentally entered some kind of eternal loop that was related to GLSL. I do not even remember the exact code, but it was something like sending to the GPU the same basic data (e.g. camera orientation) in an eternal loop.

Now, the (other) thing is that the computer died immediately after that bug. I had sourced it (after I opened it up) to a fried GPU that probably managed to fry the motherboard. And to this day I am not sure what happened:

1. Did I kill the GPU with a bug?

2. Would it die anyway the next time it was overheated?

It's a bit "exciting" if I killed it with a bug because if I kept that bug I could probably blackmail NVIDIA. thumb.gif

(Don't worry NVIDIA, I haven't kept the bug wink.gif )
