Windows 7: Total Freeze on Reboot

Total Freeze on Reboot

I am running Win 7 Pro x64. My profile is up-to-date

I just shut down my machine and remembered a task I'd forgotten. I rebooted as soon as it was 'quiet' and encountered this string at the top of the display:

113-1E628A-888 RV678 GDDR4_16MX32 256BIT_

It was white letters on a black screen.

I took a fuzzy digital photo and copied the text to Notepad and proofread it twice.

Neither power button and none of the keystrokes I could remember had any effect. I pulled the power and plugged it back in. The subsequent boot seemed 'normal' and has allowed me to create this post.

Has anyone seen anything like this before?

Here's a hint.

I truncated the string to the second half "GDDR4_16MX32 256BIT_" and searched.

Google returned 324 hits. The first hit matches my graphics card, Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 PCIe 512 Mb.

Here's the Google URL:

Does this make sense to someone with more technical knowledge? Is it something I should consider troubling?

Best is to wait 10 seconds to turn on any electronic device when you turn it off. May have been a temporary glitch.
