So I've been having an issue with my HP 6735s laptop.
I went on holiday for two weeks, and after I returned (yesterday) and used my laptop, everything was fine when, suddenly, the entire screen went black except for a blue bar across the bottom of the screen. The screen stayed like this for perhaps 5-6 seconds, before it restarted (and loaded up normally, with the exception of the "windows did not shut down properly" screen). I was able to use the laptop again without issue.
Then this morning, once again while using Google Chrome to browse the internet, the same thing happened again.
Is there anything I can do to fix this issue and stop it from happening?
The laptop runs Windows Vista (32 bit); 4gb ram; 1.9 ghz AMD Athlon X2 dual-core QL-60 processor; and an ATI HD3200 graphics card.
