(video Card??) Device failure???
its happend ever sense i have had my pc (1 week)
randomly every thing will lock up (except sound) for a bour 15- 30 sec then the screen will reset
to a low low resolution and the
colors will be wrong. a message says
windows has recoverd from a deviec failure please reboot for
restored function,(something like that)

i reset and its just fine.. it can happen when i am running any application... Totaly random..

Try all the usual stuff:
  • How hot is the card getting?
  • Update drivers
  • Reinstall Drivers
