Hello BlueScreenDeath,

Are you doing anything when this starts to happen? I.e. gaming.
Have you checked the connectors?
Are you using the latest graphics drivers?
Regards,

Alan.

I was just watching a video. It started glitching like that today when I clicked the 'full screen' button. This is the first time this has happened

ie. It starts glitching when I press the full screen button in youtube, veoh, etc

That is strange, use http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/ to find the exact details of the graphics card. a print screen would be better. What browser are you using?
The event viewer may give some more information.

1. Click Start select run
2. Type eventvwr.exe
3. Press enter
4. Search through the groups for errors and warnings.
5. Double click on each error and or warning.
6. Locate the copy to clipboard button, Posted Image (under the two arrows)
7. Let us know what you find. (paste the results)
Regards,

Alan.

It says I have 2509 errors total, 1 in the last 24hr and 24418 warnings, 2 in the last 24hr

Most recent error:
Faulting application iexplore.exe, version 7.0.6000.16386, time stamp 0x4549b133, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 6.0.6000.16386, time stamp 0x4549bdc9, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0003b15f, process id 0x140c, application start time 0x01c7692323ab1038.


But the other errors deal with msnmsgr and the printer, which isn't the problem... ?

*btw, my firefox also updated itself automatically I believe (google toolbar or aim search?)

No problem, glad to help.

You could try uninstalling then installing the browser again.

I just updated my program. Apparently IE now isn't working either.

It stopped working after it made me install flash or macromedia adobe. Now the screen glitches for both IE and firefox... >_<

How do I uninstall the updates?

My system restore is glitched and doesnt work =(
