  1. Hi there, I've recently been experiencing a problem with my HP Pavilion laptop (running Vista Home 32bit), every so often the screen will just turn black with some white diagonal lines running across it. It will then not respond to any commands and will force me to reboot and lose anything I was working on, please can anyone help me as I've lost work twice now due to this problem,

    Many thanks,



    Oh and could someone tell me if this is at least in the right forum as I'm thinking it's a windows problem but it could also be the graphics card.
