Yesterday I was happily using x-windows on my computer. The system started acting up and 
frroze up. The screen had a bunch of random colors displayed. T reset system and after 
reboot I attempted to start xwindows again and the computer rebooted itself.

This has happened every time since last night. This is a dual boot system so I booted into 
windows do see if the video card might be damaged, but windows starts up ok.

I even defined a new freebsd userid and started x without any window manager andit still 
crashes machine.

Any ideas?
