Default Acer Iconia A500 screen issues

Hi. I'm having some issues with my tablet. I keep getting dumped out of programs. Mostly on the internet. When I go back in I get these goofy screens with an assortment of colors and lines. When I reboot, everything is fine for awhile. It seems to do it more when I'm getting low on power. Has anyone else having this problem? Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks.

i would take it back and get a replacement asap sounds like a hardware issue do you notice it happens when the tablet is moved or held in a certain way?

i usually have it standing in its case. I really haven't noticed any kind of pattern. I got this for Mother's Day last year. Do you think Best Buy would take it back or Acer would do anything?

Your best bet would be to contact them... it is obviously a hardware issue, so they should be ok with it!
