Twice in the past week my computer has frozen up with a sideways "zigzag" pattern on it..cannot turn it off except at the tower button..when I try to turn it back on, it takes about three tries before it responds..then it will work ok. What causes this, could it be virus or malware, or is it a computer problem?

Moved from AII as it is a likely hardware problem ~BP
