Laptop Hardware Problem?
I have a HPdv9000 and have had it for a couple months now and it's been flawless. Yesterday I came across a problem, I started up my laptop and browsed the web for awhile and then just let my laptop sit for probably 30 minutes. When I came back it had rebooted, and jumped since I have a ubuntu on a different partition and it booted into that. Well i restarted and booted back into Vista home premium, the strange thing that i noticed was at the the bios and the grub screens the text was strange looking, like their were line running through it. The Vista welcome page came up and everything looked fine so i logged in and as it was on a black screen loading for a couple seconds I all of a sudden got a pink screen!?! It was really strange because it looked like when an NES game wouldn't load and you had to blow into the cartridge. I'm really curios why this would happen, what i thought it might be was i downloaded the new Firefox3 beta 4. I was able to boot into safe mode but the screen still had come weird colored lines on it that wouldnt go away. I removed FireFox and even updated my Video driver and it still didnt help. But this morning Booted up my laptop to mess with it to see if i could fix it and it is working fine!? the only thing i noticed was at the loading screen were the loading bar is the bar itself looked a bit goofy like it was going to happen again, but so far its alright. I didnt know if it could be a hardware issue, I'm gonna get a can of duster and clean it out since i havent done that yet and i'm jumping on the chance that it's dust interfering with somthing. If you guys have any ideas on how this could be fixed for future cases or what the cause might be i would be greatly appreciated. I use this for College and if i loose this i'm gonna be screwed, lol. Thanks.
