What was the previous OS, & I'm assuming it didn't have this problem with it?

Is it in warranty?

I hope it isn't something similar to this click here, & seems fatal (to the screen!) if these comments are to believed click here. G

as above changing from XP to Vista means a New Set of Hardware Drivers, including Monitor

the previous os was also vista (vista to vista) woodchip so probably not a driver issue...

Need to know now if updating drivers has helped or not tho...
