    Hello everyone,

    Very randomly, my computer hangs under Windows XP sp1, keyboard and mouse
    unusable, but processes and downloads still running. After 2 minutes, the
    screen goes black, then an Error Message appears: "Windows has repaired a
    faulty device", and the screen is set to 640*480 4bits. I have to reboot my
    computer to get back to normal 1024*768 32bits, except I have to change
    manually the refresh rate from 60 to 85 hertz.

    Anyone experiences the same problem? Any advice to sove or prevent this?

    Thanx in advance.
