When I started my pc up today the screen went funny when it got to my desktop and it froze I then manually switched the power off and back on then rebooted were I got the following warning

Improper shutdown during VGA clocksetting do you want to reset.

I chose to reset.

Do I have anything to worry about and is there anything i should be doin to fix this problem.

It looks like a graphics glitch, acceptmyname. Are you still having the problem or has it rectified itself?

  acceptmyname 13:06 06 Jan 2008

It seems to have rectified itself for now

is there anything i can do to prevent it happening again

Thanks for reply

...if you give it time to boot properly,
but if it does just go through the same procedure

..from the manufacturers site.

Also note that the correct way to switch off (always as a last resort), is to hold down the On button on the PC for four seconds - not to switch off at the switch on the back of the PC nor at the Mains switch.

Forgot to mention - don't switch on again for at least 30 seconds.
