  1. Can anyone please help me fix the problem shown in the screenshot below? My screen starts to pixelate with strange colours, then eventually freezes. I've had a message pop up saying my display driver has stopped working, and has been resolved as well. All my drivers are up to date and my OS is Vista. Please say this can be fixed easily...I'm not the most technical person on the planet!

    Are you using a separate GPU or onboard VGA?

    As I said, I'm not the most technical person, so I'm unsure...I haven't changed any hardware in the casing since I bought the computer...heck I don't even know what a motherboard looks like!
