Is it the monitor doing or it just video from youtube. Cuz when I reply the same spot it does not get mess up no more. But if I reply it back and front often I will get this mess up video screen on youtube..
So is it my monitor doing?
seeing as that only the video part seems to be going haywire, I assume is an issue with your gpu, maybe running at that rez is causing it to choke and die for certain tasks. I used to have a faulty gpu in an old amd thin and light laptop and youtube flash videos would often show such artifacts. flash video content uses hardware acceleration to play back the video, so if there is some gpu issue it tends to pop up there. If you download those videos and play them using vlc player, there will be ZERO artifacting as I believe vlc uses software to decode the video and not the gpu.
plan of action:
set the clocks back to 60Hz and see if the artifacts are still there in the video, if no, then something changes on the gpu side as you outpute higher refresh rates at that resolution. To test the limits, increase the refresh rate incrementally until you first see some issue, and stop right before there.
alternatively, get a better newer gpuEdited by Sammael7 - 3/9/12 at 12:31am
