You say the computer posts normal--is the video card being recognized within Device Manager? Try installing by adding a new device, then everything should be fine. Also make sure that your monitor is plugged into the card :) . Try different connections to monitor if available.
I'm having the same problem, but I don't want to have to turn off my computer EVERY time it does this. (I have not been able to shut down the laptop normally because it goes into sleep every time.) I've heard that after 3 hours it builds up an eletrical charge and you have to take the battery out, but I havn't had it on for 3 hours at a time.
Assuming stock LT go to start run and type msconfig and click ok. On the general tab select Diagnostic Startup and click ok, it will ask to reboot and seleck ok. After the reboot see if it is operating normally.
If it is working normally then some application is causing the problem. You can selectivly choose to launch one app at a time till you find the one causing the problem. Most likely is antivirus set too agressivley or spyware. Might consider a tool like spybot to clean the system.
To boot to safe mode: Restart
the computer. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, keep tapping on F8 key on your
keyboard. When the Windows Options menu appears select the "Safe
mode" then press Enter.
you managed to boot to Safe mode, change the computer startup and
recovery settings by right-clicking "My Computer" then select
Properties. Select Advanced tab. Under Startup and Recovery, click
Settings. Uncheck the box for "Automatically restart" under System
Reboot again normally, see if it will reboot again by
itself. If you managed to make the system boot normally, proceed to
Events Viewer to find out what is the caused.
If the system
failed to boot normally after doing the above, you might want to boot
the system to "Last known good configuration"
