Is this a gpu problem or monitor problem?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Basically my monitor (qnix) can run 120hz, BUT for some reason there is these green pixels on some website images and in most games(bioshock) especially but fifa 2014 works fine apart from the intro screen where there are some green pixels, they don't appear when my monitor runs at 60hz.

I have come to realize that it appears these pixels seem to only show on the right hand side of the screen, running at 96hz reduces the green pixels and lowering the color bit helps a lot to, does anyone have any idea what is causing this?

The green pixels aren't hard stuck there, like if I drag an image to the right other green pixels will show, and some flicker.

Doing a google search and some people have the same problem and think it is a vram issue, could that be the same for me or is it a monitor problem?

I have already tested another DVI cable and different nvidia drivers but no joy, any info on whether its likely to be the gpu or not would be great, then I can RMA with EVGA asap.

My other EVGA card is faulty so I don't have any other cards to test if it is a problem with the monitor.

Here is an image slightly to the left from the middle of the monitor


Now here is the same image dragged slightly to the right, note the green pixels that develop.

Without having parts to swap out it's very hard to tell for sure (and they'll sometimes bill you for a no-fault RMA).

Hit up a local electronics store and pick up a monitor (or if you have to have a 120Hz TV, plug your computer into it and try running it at 120Hz) that's 120Hz - you can always return it. You may even be able to just bring your computer into a store and plug it into a screen on display there (I used to have customers do this on occasion when I worked in Geek Squad) to save yourself making multiple trips.

If the issue persists to a new monitor, it's likely your GPU or drivers. If it goes away you know its your screen. Unfortunately with this kind of an issue it's hard to differentiate what's causing your problem.
