Hi there this is my first time post,
I have recently installed windows 7 professional on my pc: Packard bell, amd 64, 1gb ram. I have been using it for 1day now and I keep getting a White screen that appears and I cannot get rid of it, all functions are disabled, no bios or anything so I have to restart the pc have tried cleaning the CPU if dust but nothing happens, is this a problem with my graphics card and the fact that win 7 is higher spec? If it is a graphics card problem please recommend a good card to purchase-I am not a gamer so I don't need anything high spec just enough to run win7 and basic programs.

Does it boot into windows before the white screen appears or you can't even get to the bios?

I can get into windows fine the boot up is completely normal it looks like nothing is wring and the os seems fairly fast but then after say 15mins it just goes White with thin grey lines in sequence down the screen.
