So i'm getting these artifacts in-game : http://imgur.com/a/ApOoy

and on the taskbar im getting these when a white background is on the screen:http://imgur.com/a/YjZgk


I have a old acer monitor that only has one vga port, and i am connecting that to my RX460 card, via hdmi adapter:https://www.amazon.co.uk/Adapter-Convertor-Cable-Converter-support/dp/B00K808RVQ


I have reinstalled graphics drivers but that didn't help so i connected it to my TV to the VGA port, and when i booted up CIV VI the artifacts weren't there anymore, and the vertical lines on the taskbar also went away.


Now the question is, is this a Monitor issue or a graphics card issue, or a VGA to HDMI adapter issue, and how can i fix this.



Thanks in advance, sorry if i posted in the wrong category, don't really know if this is a internal or external hardware issue.


this is one i took right now of my taskbar showing vertical lines, happens ONLY when the browser or desktop wallpaper has a white background.:http://imgur.com/a/MxiUN


edit: Dont know if i should call them artifacts, disturbance maybe ?

looks like your graphics card cannot handle a certain shade of that color it wants to project, ((propably white in your case))


Try watching a movie or something and see if the same persists...


If so might be your card, a different monitor may also be tested... but i fear it is the card.
