I get these weird small black rectangle box artifacts when browsing around my desktop. I can play BF3/Swtor/Tribes and I don't get artifacts but when I browse around and click and type, I get weird black boxes that flash around. Any ideas what could be causing this problem? My graphics card is a XFX Radeon 7870. I'm plugged into my 4 year old 1080p insignia lcd television.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
Edit: I have also overclocked my cpu (but I don't think they cause artifacts) but it's stable under 12 hours of prime 95. I ran my graphics card under a furmark test and there are no artifacts either. Also, when I print screen and paste the image in paint, the artifacts do not appear in the image....
Just thought I'd write that I found a solution on another forum and the issue has been resolved. The problem was that at idle clocks (300/150) there was not enough speed for 2d tasking. Increasing the idle clocks to (300/400) appears to have resolved the artifacting issue.
