System crashing overnight two or three times a week

I just purchased a new Dell E521 with a dual processor and Vista premium. It
is running fine but at night it will frequently crash. When you check it in
the morning the screen is just multi-colored lines and it has to run a self
repair. I have a cable modem through comcast. Is this happening to anyone
else or is anyone aware of any fixes for this? I'd really appreciate any
help.

Sounds like an issue with your graphics card. Have you installed the latest
drivers? Also, check Windows Vista's Event Viewer for any error messages
that might be associated with the problem. Also, check Problems and
Solutions > View Problem History ( under All Programs/Maintenace group). If
you are unable to access them in real mode, restart in Safe Mode and try
again.
