Weird Pixel Distortion

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Hi All,

 

A little confused as to something that happened with my PC today. Having been away for a fortnight or so I rebooted my PC to see attached/below if it's formatting correctly (excuse the potato quality - messenger ruins my phone camera)received_577922553083368.thumb.jpeg.f55c64535ae936744625e5e13354fa2d.jpeg


Having tested my Nintendo Switch as well as plugging in the switch's hdmi cable into the graphics card and monitor, I know it wasn't a monitor or cable issue, but the pixel distortion continued after multiple restarts, before going away while I was downloading (but hadn't yet installed) the latest graphics driver.

 

My and a friend's initial theory was some artifacting so I opened up a heavily modded fallout 4 to stress test and heat up the card to see if I could reproduce the distortion but it never returned. Also no return after restarting the PC either even though the distortion appeared immediately on boot when it was occurring.

Anyone have any ideas? Is my PC a ticking time bomb and I should start saving for a new GPU? Has Riot's Anti-Cheat Vanguard made me afraid for my life?

 

Thanks in Advance.

Ddu the drivers. 

If you have any overlock get rid of it.

Yeah not overclocking the GPU.  I guess I'm sceptical of the artifacting theory since the error was there from startup with minimal gpu temp but idk

 

ddu?
