Strange Problem



Anyone come across this before?

My screen occasionally goes grey with vertical white lines about 3-4mm apart. Don't know if the colour is just my desktop colour, as that's grey....... now blue ready for next time it does it.

It also ticks and sounds like a single cylinder engine.:D

I think the ticking is 'media player' as I can turn the volume up/down and it's playing anyway as it does this.

It's done it twice now this week and there's nothing I can do but reboot.

If you download "Filemon", it might just give you some clues.

It's free.

For Vista (Spit!) you'll need this:

It's a damned useful tool that's well worth having, anyway.
