Hello folks

I have seen this before when a computer I was working on was having issues with its OS, and I am probably going to have to blow away my Windows install and start fresh, but can anyone tell me exactly what can cause the type of graphic on-screen dashes that are occuring on most pages that come up on my PC?

Thanks. The image is linked to below. Not sure why I can't poast the image, perhaps it is a limitation of my amount of posts or something.

I'm not sure, if I understand your image:

Why is it rounded?
Is this your desktop screen?

Sorry for the confusion.

The sphere is part of my screen that I grabbed. The issue is with the little dashes you see all over the sphere. The color should be solid, and this happens randomly on my screen but not all the time and sometimes it goes away.

Does it happen, when you're doing something particular?

Does it happen in Safe Mode?

Download System Information for Windows (SIW free version)
No installation required.

After it scans your computer, navigate to Hardware>Sensors and post all info from there.

It happens randomly and can happen to IE when surfing or when launching programs, like Quicken.

Does it happen in Safe Mode?
No, it doesn't appear to happen in safe mode...

Here's the SIW sensor report, thanks.

It doesn't show CPU temperature, but video card temperature seems to be fine.

If it doesn't happen in Safe Mode, it may be just a matter of reinstalling video driver.

Thanks Broni.

I'll try that approach and see if it rectifies the situation. Oddly enough, I had updated the video card driver only recently.

Rolling back the driver seems to have alleviated the issue as far as I can tell!

I'm rather talking about uninstalling current driver and installing fresh one.
