anyone with any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated.
firstly, to help anyone trying to help me - i have installed all updates and this has not fixed anything.
here's a brief description of problem:-
first noticed that when screensaver loads the laptop crashes.
this has happened twice now in last couple of days. tried to change screensaver settings - but just acessing that screen made laptop crash.
then found that i can play music in media player (and winamp), but as soon as i try and enable visualisations computer crashes (to a complete powerdown).
desktop screen always looks fine, and youtube (flash videos) play fine also...as does internet etc....it just appears to be anything playing video from a player....
anyone any ideas?
