Transparent Checkerbroad

  JuLieB2SiLLie 02:42 12 Sep 2004

I have a Compaq Presario S4100NX that would usually pop up some kind of image that looks like a transparent checkerbroad that fill up the whole screen, then freezes the whole computer up. I would then turn off the computer and restart it again. But as I restart it, the computer rufuses to start back up again. I would have to wait for a couple weeks later for the computer to go back up and running, but then the same situation occurs again. Any suggestions? Thank you.

One thing comes to mind is heat, if its overheating this is its way of complaining, which could point to a faulty fan.
