Computer question (problem)

My desktop has started blanking out on me and I don't know why.

I'll put it to sleep and when I come back, the screen is black and I can see a top row of pixles, but nothing else. I try to tap the spacebar, but nothing happens.

I try control/alt/delete, and I can tell the screen shifts colors (because of the top row) but nothing else.

So, I have to do a hard power off (hold the power button) and reboot.

It works fine until I get hexed again.

WTF?

When the "Most interesting man in the world" needs advice, he calls me.
