I got the Star3 in August and it's been half way around the world with me and generally working well since then.
One or two times at power on I've had multicolour flashing screens that look like the old TV test patterns. I power off and then reboot ok.
This evening I had the multicolour flashing screens when I tried to reactivate the Star3 after it had timed out, the screen lock had come up and the screen brightness had gone down. That worries me more because it I had to hard power down an established session with all the potential consequences for loss of data and file system corruption. I ran chkdsk and it reported no errors so hopefully I'm ok.
I've seen references to this in one other post about a Pangolin which says it has something to do with ATI drivers - does that apply to the Star3?
Should I update the display drivers? Is this a hardware problem?
I will be taking the Star3 on another long trip early next year and I depend on it a lot when I'm away.
