Weird thing happening with new built rig & my display
Oct 6, 2011, 5:22 AM
Built a new rig. Everything works great. Specs are:
asrock mobo 1155 compatible
8gb ddr3 1600 ripjaw
1tb caviar black HDD
gtx 580 - evga superlocked
monitor: hp 23"
connection: VGA cable via DVI>VGA converter peice
So everything has been working great. However I've noticed something odd.
When I have multiple program options, and i switch between them using alt-tab, part of a background program appears in the foreground.
For example, I'm downloading 3 games at once using steam, origin, and a regular .exe launchpad. When I alt-tab to origin, parts of steam show up on my screen briefly then disappear.
What's causing this? Graphics drivers are fully updated.
