Computer Problem - Screen going haywire


Happened to me yesterday and today. When I'm using the scroll bar on the web browser or on Word the screen graphics break up and just becomes bits, a bit like that old special effect they used to have when pop videos first came out - Michael Jackson and Earth Wind & Fire styley. ;)

Anyway, once I reboot it's no problem at all, so it's not the monitor. Either a software problem or graphics cards problem?

Any Ideas folks?

It sounds like a fault with your graphics card to be honest mate.


JohnG, I was getting a bit paranoid that it might be a virus or something.:rolleyes:

Maybe the card is overheating, if it happens again I'll have a shufty inside.
