Screen going crazy

Hi Everyone,

I recently bought a new computer: i5, 4 Gigs of RAM, etc.

A couple of times since the purchase my screen has gone completely "insane", as shown in the link below.

Screen Going Crazy!

I have swapped monitors over, with the "box" still powered, and the screen has been the same.

I also have my computer setup for remote access by VNC (Virtual Network Client) and when it is running normally logging on is not an issue, but when the screen goes "crazy" I am unable to logon!

This computer has 64 Bit Windows 7 and all manufacturers drivers installed on it, and it only goes "crazy" occasionally, twice in about three weeks.

If anybody has any ideas of what may be causing this fault please share them with me.

Thanks

Davo

It most likely is a video card issue.

Looks to me you need to wrap up that video card and take it back where you bought it.
This is definitely a video card issue, have you been overclocking it ?
And does this happen from day 1 ? <=- duh you stated that, might end up to be a manufacturing fault.
i bet this happens most of the time when you stress out the card or temperature's are higher then normal / idle.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the feedback.

Unfortunately the graphics are integrated into the Motherboard!

I am going to wait it out and if it happens one more time it is going back.

Cheers
