I know that at one point in time or other we have all at least heard about the "blue screen of death" with Windows. Well, I have a bit of a "news flash" for you - I have occasionally encountered the VL 7.0 equivalent of that, the only difference being that the screen background is black instead of blue, and no, I don't know how to reproduce it because I don't remember what I was doing at the time it happened before. I just thought that it was only fair to let you know about it.

Funny.  I've been using VL for many hours every day for many years and I cannot recall that happening to me even once.  Perhaps your computer is contaminated.

Maybe. All I do know is that I HAVE experienced it (although I admit not since the last time that I had to reinstall it).

Lockups do happen. They may be software or hardware related.

If you do a lot of experimenting, customizing and hacking like Vectorites tend to do, you will eventually find combinations which will push your machine over the edge. Here is a little trick which has worked for me many times: http://kember.net/articles/reisub-the-gentle-linux-restart/
