Hello! Through the help of google and some specific key words, I was able to come across you guys.
I figured that some insight into this somewhat reoccurring issue would be a good idea at this point because I have no idea where to go.
At first, I thought it was a game related issue because it only seemed to happen while playing RAGE. It then started happening even when I was just performing simple computer tasks. Basically what happens is that a "script error" with (red letters in a black box I believe) appears at the top of the monitor briefly, and then all of a sudden everything running begins to fail//crash. Audio becomes completely distorted, and just sounds like a bunch of scratchy-beeping. . very annoying. There will also be random graphic distortions with horizontal and vertical lines that replace what an image used to be. Attached are some examples of the video distortion ( please excuse the left side image on each)
It seems that the only way to make all of this to go away, is to simply restart the computer. I've updated every possible driver I can think of, and nothing has seemed to work yet.
