    Occaisionally when exiting Media Center I get a black screen and my system
    locks up. My hard drive indicator shows activity but I cannot get any
    response from the system and must use the RESET button to restart. I am
    running Vista Home Premium SP1 and have an ATI HD3470 video card with the
    latest Catalyst drivers. This is a real PITA as I have a 1TB RAID volume
    that must be verified when this happens and that takes about 4 hours.

    TIA

    That was the most useless reply I ever saw. Everyone knows event viewer
    won't tell you a darn thing.

    Maybe *you* don't find anything useful with Event Viewer, but someone with
    the proper knowledge can glean lots of info there.

    I have solve many problems with clues from Event Viewer.
