  1. Hi,

    I have a strange problem with my laptop: It shows strange colour distortions before my screen goes blank for a little while and I can't do anything anymore. And sometimes the screen just goes blank and my laptop reboots.

    At first I thought the problem was my video card overheating, but after cleaning my laptop completely the problem didn't go away.
    I installed the new nvidia drivers, but that didn't solve the problem either.
    I've been looking on the internet for a while now for an answer to this annoying problem but can't seem to find it, so maybe you guys can help me.
