Hi guys. I hope someone will be able to help me out here. (This is also my first post, so hi everyone! :] )

I have been having some graphical glitches recently, and I don't know why. I haven't updated any graphics drivers, it just seemed to happen randomly and hasn't gone away. Here are a few pictures of what is happening:


Using Eclipse, after alt tabbing in-and-out of the program. Moving the mouse around the items reveals more of what is behind the black "box." Lowering and then maximizing the window fixes the glitch for a while.



This is using the command prompt after typing a few things. Often times I can even let it sit there and it will move the blinking cursor to somewhere else on the screen (See it at the bottom?). Once again, lowering and maximizing the program fixes it.



Those are the two programs it happens the most in. I'm sorry I can't get more pictures. It generally seems that when I want a problem to happen so I can take a picture, it won't happen. Bah.


It has happened in programs like Spotify and Word. Never in any games like Minecraft or BF4 or Watch Dogs. I assume probably because the screen is constantly refreshing.


Here is a CPU-Z report of my computer. (Graphics card is way at the bottom)


Please help if you can.

Thanks!! :)

I would install the latest driver suite, and then run the suite. Command it to work in the native resolution of the monitor (this will work best if the monitor's driver suite is also installed).


The above should help... but be advised that the irritating "black boxes" usually happen because you need more video and/or regular RAM.
