in bright red italic script in the middle of a grey rectangle that covers the middle of the screen. The rectangle is darker than the rest of the screen, but you can see through it, so the machine isn't technically completely unusable, just very uncomfortable to use. It is about a week since I first turned it on, so maybe it's timed something out, but one week of use is not right.
Hopefully it will sort itself out, but I certainly don't know how. I can't recommend the netbook if it only lasts a week. anybody here on pc advisor know how to fix this?
