Red flecks in textures, ATI 5770

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright, so I have had this problem for a while and I am finally making an attempt to fix it. In most of my games in certain layers of textures there will be small red flecks, individual red pixels, sprinkled about the texture. For example, the background of Skyrim's leveling screen has these noticeable red specks. In the second image I have circled a number of them just to clarify what I mean, but they are pretty much all over the screen. You may have to zoom in to see them, but when the texture is littered with them it is quite noticable.

Anyone have any Idea what is going on here, or what I can do to fix it?


In case it is doing the same thing, in my preview the second image didn't display until I clicked on it.

Those random red pixels are called artifacts. They're not good. Artifacts are caused by transmission error or signal processing operation faults. They can be from compression algorithms with high loss in high compression ratios. (That's not the case).
If you've overclocked your GPU it's possible that the errors have introduced these artifacts. If you have cooling inadequacy it can be from that as well. Driver "updates" can introduce the problem. Some users have had artifacts occur due to bad DVI or HDMI cables.

Start simple, and then get more complex.

  • If you've overclocked your video card, return it to stock speeds.
  • After that, check your cables. Check for solid firm connections first, interference from other similar cables second, and then third try swapping the cables.
  • Check to make sure that you have the latest drivers. If you do, try rolling back to a previous version and see if the problem goes away with the same settings.
  • If none of those work, then it could be the card itself.
