Ultra annoying blue artifacts on screen with GTX 670.

Everytime I watch videos on youtube or any media player I will get blue screen artifact in the form of either flickering blue lines or lingering patches of blue dots similar to dead pixels. The effect will not go away unless the computer is rebooted. The driver will occasionally stop working when this occurs as well.

This has yet to happen in a game, although I assume it will eventually do so, it only happens when watching videos so far. Anyone else ever experienced this issue ? Any ideas on a potential fix ? This 1500$ gaming computer has been nothing but trouble since I assembled it last week. I'm very tempted to throw it down the garbage and go back to my older, more modest mid range gaming build which was still very much able to run anything I threw at it.

Worst investment ever :(

  1. What are your specs and what were your specs? Otherwise we can be of no help.
  2. The current problem PC is as follows :

    Asus p8z77-v mobo
    Gigabyte GTX 670
    Intel Core i5 3470
    8gb Corsair RAM
    750W Corsair CPU
    Samsung 830 SSD
    1TB WD storage SSD
  3. Well just to add some input, while browsing google for information about this issue I started to have flickering vertical yellow lines added to the mix as well. The monitor is not the problem, just tested using my old rig and everything displays fine. Switching back to my new system brings the artifacts and lines back.
  4. You are using the same cable to connect to the monitor as you did with your old rig? (I'd imagine you are just making sure.) Have you installed the latest drivers for your GTX 670? Could you maybe post a screenshot of the lines?
  5. Looks like a very solid build. I'd recommend updating your GPU drivers.
