Hey all,

I've had my Lenovo Y510P for a few years, and it hasn't had serious issues until very recently. For the last few days, quite a few scattered, red and off-color pixels are infiltrating my screen, and moving on and off, usually in some sync with my mouse movements or other on-screen activity. I've also had a couple system crashes and (what I think) is longer than normal boot up times since this time, possibly related.

My computer skills are about average for a millennial, and I haven't tried anything to solve this yet other than a system reset, which my computer said there was an error of, and so no changes actually occurred. My research turned up little, with the only comparable error being the one described here, attributed to bump underfill cracking in the GPU:


Any and all help would be appreciated :/

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.


It looks like there is an issue with the video.  I'd advise updating the video drivers to start with.  Do you see the same thing on an external monitor?
