Green monitor issue, alt tab.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all. Im having an issue with my monitor. When I start / exit a game, or alt-tab out of a game I sometimes (25% of the time) get a Green or Red Grain that covers the screen. Turning off/on the monitor fixes the issue. Is my monitor going out? Thanks for any and all help!

I also got GTX 580 in SLi.

Do you have a spare monitor to test this with? It may be a driver conflict.

...and did that fix it?

It's hard to troubleshoot and rule out parts if you don't have spares. There's nobody you can snag a monitor for a few hours from?

I tried to revert back to 266.58 but that didn't fix it, and I found an old CRT monitor and that did not have the issue at all, i'm starting to blame the DVI cable or the monitor itself.
