I've been getting lots of crashes & boot problems & have now noticed on Boot screen on the Bios display sceen that I'm getting random coloured small rectangles, when they over lay letters they also change the colour of that letter. When I get to the windows Xp screen there are blue patches on the screen, then on the windows is starting up screen it seems to take for ever to progress to the Desktop & sometimes failing completely & shutting the Display off ( it goes on standby )
What could be causing this?
