At first it was only after i died in the forest, but not it is permanent. Happens from startup to running. Happens when unplugged too (the "There is no signal" message flickers)

Because of these latter details, i find it hard to believe that it is the game that ruined my monitor/computer.

another thing my computer does now is when i open folders, my mouse jumps back and forth between loading mouse and regular mouse before opening.

checked my drives and neither of them had errors

any ideas? is my monitor trashed?
