I like the video! I can't wait for the sequel!

This could be caused by a number of things. Did it ever work right before? Or was it like this 'right out of the box'?

If you care to test the memory:

Microsoft Memory Diagnostic

If there are two pieces of RAM you could always remove one and see if this issue persists. If it does, swap the pieces and try again. This would identify which piece of RAM is defective, if any.

What are the specs on this computer, especially as it concernes the video card and amount of RAM.

Are you able to boot into safe mode with no issues by hitting F8 upon booting and choosing "Safe Mode" from the list of choices that presents itself?

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
