right, I was watching a movie, when all of a sudden my screen went white - sound was still playing but the pc was unresponsive (couldn't pause). rebooting solved this "for now". what could be the cause?
using win xp x64, radeon 4870 1gb, core 2 quad

driver failure for graphics card? Maybe vram locked up on vga? maybe system ram errored out? just a few guesses.
how to find out?
Check windows system error log in the manage console would be 1st place to start. Also getting something like memtest to test your ram would be good.
