Help me fix none-gpu related artifacts?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I am struggling to pin point my screen artifacts problem, and I need to test my monitor before I can send it off for repair. Im hoping someone out there might know of a solution as to why I am getting these screen artifacts. I have included a few pictures of what is going on:

The top picture happened few days ago, the screen looks like it has changed resolution by itself, all icons are larger but the screen is also distorted. The second image is what I get most often, small 1mm lines a few inches apart appear on screen and move upwards continuously. I get these screen artifacts randomly, I can be playing a game, browsing the internet, sat idle. Strangely enough restarting my pc doesnt fix the problem, but turning the monitor off and back on makes the issue go away. GPU temps under load do not go above 55C on my pc. Here is what I have tried to far:

Switching from my GTX 570 to onboard Intel HD 3000 GPU - not worked
Reinstalled OS - not worked
Switched from DVI to new DVI cable - not worked
Switched from DVI to HDMI cable - not worked
Switched motherboard from ASrock E4 to Gigabyte UD3H - I THINK I had these artifact issues with the asrock board, but not 100% certain.

Im fast running out of ideas as to what could be the problem here. Anyone got any ideas? Screen resolution is set to 1920x1080 native, I am running latest nvidia drivers, 120hz mode (tried swapping to 60hz mode on HDMI, made no difference.)

If you've swithced to a different graphics card and those lines are still showing, it's clearly the monitor itself that had the problems.

THe fact that you resolve the issue by turning the monitor on or off may also hint at this being a monitor problem. Remember when you restart a computer you don't actually cut power to the monitor.
