    You know what, I get that same thing that happens on my computer. I have vista ultimate 32 bit too and everyonce in awhile the screen goes weird and I can't do anything. I have to reset my computer everytime. It seems like it usually does it when I try installing something or if there is a lot of work going on with the computer. Who knows what it is?

    It could be the load on your video card. Either overheating causing artifacting or driver conflicts. I would first try updating your video card drivers.
