Ok, I have some news on this that I know you will not like, but the whole point of this site is to try and help you fix the problem, or at least, try and point you in the right direction.
I have done some extensive searching on this problem over the last month, as I have also had a friend with a similar problem that you are describing. There is a manufacturer's fault on the main power board, this has been recognised by Gateway, but as it happens inconsistantly (it may happen after a few months or a few years), they are not prepared to recall the product.
Obviously this doesn't help us as consumers that buy their products. The blue screen that you describe happens with alot of visual hardware inc. graphics cards that affects the whole market, and has now become affectionately known as The Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD).
If you are one of the lucky one's, and it is still under the manufacturer's warranty, get it sent back asap, and ask for a replacement to a similar model. If not, the only thing you can do is get it repaired or get a new/2nd-hand one.
Like I said, I'm sorry this isn't the news you wanted, but I didn't think it was fair for you to hang on.

I have the same problem on my set. I had a repair technician out today and they wanted to replace the circuit board that the buffers are connected to and the adjacent board that drives the buffers. If you remove the back panel the buffers that are in line with the distorted areas on the screen are running super hot. Estimated price with labor was $700.

hello imvega7, as i know, 42 inch is a plasma display TV.
Refer to your image, and my experience that symptomp because of connection between buffer PCB and panel. Some cases, dirty conection may cause this symptomp.
Un plug power cord, open rear cover, fine pcb on upper or lower panel.
unplug flat cables from pcb buffer, clean soket using a brush. And also clean flat cables using celaner or alcohol.
Wait untill that conection dry. reassembly and try it.
i hope that help you.
