Hello Sean@grs, thanks a lot for posting your inquire at Intel communities.
We haven’t received notification or comments about this behavior.
I would like to know which is the Intel Graphics driver that you are using and also the complete model number of your Celeron processor?
You could try to use the system on save mode in order to find out if this is a driver issue or a hardware problem.
We also provide an application that is called Intel® Processor Diagnostics Tool. You can run this application and it will diagnose the processor components and will generate a result. I suggest you running this in to discard any possible issues with the processor (hardware).
Please use minimum configuration while running this test. You can get this from the following link:
If operating system is 32 bit based: Intel® Download Center
If operating system is 64 bit based:Intel® Download Center
Thank you very much for your response.

Did you test the system on save mode? Which was the behavior?
Sean@grs, the issue has been fixed from our side a few months ago on a graphics driver. And since then all newer drivers come already with the fixed.
I would recommend you to check with Asus if there is a customized graphics driver that you can try.
In addition, you can also try updating the BIOS, since there is a new version 1108 available. http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8H61MX_R20/HelpDesk_Download/
