My monitor either turns off or freezes in crazy colors about 5-10 minutes after i restart my computer each time. Also got a blue screen once but in my rage I stupidly did not record the information (something about parity check?). So I don't really have the chance to follow through on the 8 steps. I'm posting this from my work comp. Any suggestions? Also, does anyone know how to shut down nicely (besides holding in the power button) without using the screen? I'm worried about damaging the drive. Running a Dell inspiron 1420 laptop, Windows Vista. Thanks for any help!
