I recently purchased a dell gx50 and installed Ubuntu 8.0 and also installed ebuntu on it too.

The computer works find but I found that if you let it sit for a while and come back to it the screen's graphics are scrambled displaying random colored "snow". If you hit the keys the screen glitches and beeps and then after a while the computer restarts.

This is perplexing to me. A google search did reveal any problem special about the Optiplex gx50.

What data is needed to help find out what is causing this problem?

The computer is only 2 days old.
