I dont have a lot of information aside from some screencaps.

Around late November last year, I started getting visual artifacts on my Toshiba laptop, which ran Windows 10. Since they could be screencapped, I assume it isnt an issue with the monitor.


You cant see it in action, but what would happen is that the glitchy graphics would morph and change when I hovered on different things. When this started happening I remember resetting the drivers for my graphics card. I dont recall any steps beyond that that I took to try to fix it.

I had a lot going on at the time and just sort of gave up on it, as the last time I booted it up it was trying to update and was taking forever to do so.

More than anything, I just want to see if anyones ever experienced or seen this before in any capacity, since looking stuff up both then and now lead to nothing that was really like what was happening to me. Though if anyone can tell me what to do about it thatd be helpful too, since Im getting a new computer in tomorrow and if I were able to recover some stuff off my laptop itd be nice.

Thanks for reading!

Other than updating the video drivers, and possibly the BIOS I wouldn't have any suggestions for you.  Does it happen on an external monitor?  If so it is either the video on the laptop or the software.

I receive a black screen with my mouse cursor upon attempting to boot now, on both the laptops monitor and an external monitor. When I first booted, it gave me the Toshiba logo, but no Windows logo.
