Interesting Crash, Could Use Help Resolving.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My suitemate owns an Acer Aspire X1300 desktop.

The specs are:
Windows Vista
AMD Athlon X2 7450
3GB DDR2
320GB HDD
Nvidia GeForce 8200 Integrated Graphics
And the monitor he's using is an HP 2009m

Every so often his monitor will just switch to an all white screen, and the computer completely stops responding. He has to shut off his computer by holding down the power button and restart to get it up and running again. The computer itself remains on, but unresponsive. Recently, the computer did the same thing, but instead of a white screen, he got a blank blue (a shade of blue he likened to the shade of blue in the "G" of Google.com) screen.

I felt the air coming from the case immediately after one of these "crashes" and it didn't appear to be hotter than should be normal. I tried updating the graphics drivers of his 8200, but the crash seems to be happening still. I intend to make sure he has all of the important Vista updates installed when I'm out of this class.

Anybody ever heard of a "crash" like this, where the screen just turns a flat color, usually white and apparently blue sometimes (not an average bluescreen though)? Not sure what else to try, any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance for the help, hopefully somebody has heard of or experienced something similar and can provide a fix.
