That seems to signal memory failure, although it could be something different. Run Prime95 and test your memory for defects.

Man I love those screens , because I get called out on those at leat 4 times a week and I rake in the cash. But thats happened to me once and I hated it. Use a testing prgram all night and see what happens you can have the taskmangaer start tasks on its own great for testing durability btw

That certainly looks like a video driver issue. If your laptop (I guess its a laptop, since no tower weighs 4.34 pounds) came with drivers from the manuacturer, install those if the latest catalyst drivers dont work.

Hmmmmm I hate that screen , seen it a few times , ussually happens when somthing has changed in the hardware. But ya looking at the error it could very well be the video hardware / drivers.
