I have a rather major issue which is causing me all sorts of problems. About a month ago my screen would go blank for about half a second with no driver crash report and will keep on playing the game with no frame drops or anything. In fact the game would continue during these blackouts. Now I figured that it was a slight driver issue and as long as it only occurs once or twice in a sitting that would be alright.
Now it's crashing constantly, in fact it's crashed 3 times while writing this. I have done a completely clean installation, driversweeper and all. It's still a problem and it's getting worse. After the first crash, blue artifacts will appear, sometimes a single pixel or sometimes an entire line of pixels, this seems to be my warning because right after they appear the screen blacks out again. This was a problem that started out while gaming but even simple web browsing has become a pain.
Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
