Every now and then the screen goes one flat colour, usually grey or white. The computer appears to keep running (I can still hear sound etc), so I assume it is either a drivers issue or hardware.

Considering the conditions that the failure has happened in, and the previous conditions I have used this computer in, I assume this is a hardware issue not a drivers issue. I am using the latest drivers and live update shows no more drivers needing updates.

Anyone experienced similar problems? If this persists I will have to send this box back for it's 4th RMA...

I think I just had this happen... I had to rock the lid back and forth then it popped on.... I could get HDMI out, but plugging in VGA or trying to use LCD got me a gray/white screen of uselessness.

I just fiddled with it... its working now.... but my guess is there is a poorly routed cable somewhere.

I'll add that to the list of things for the repair shop to check out...
