Windows 10: Green dots/glitter all over my screen

  1.    24 May 2017 #1

    Green dots/glitter all over my screen


    This happened while I was playing a game: When a level was loading (not for the first time, normally it would load) the game froze and I couldn't quit the game so I restarted my computer by holding the on/off button. When it came back on it was in a low resolution (I fixed the resolution) and I have these green dots all over my screen (see image) and I can't play any game without lagging like crazy. I tried connecting a different monitor to the computer but the dots were still there. Did I break my graphics card or something? Do I need to buy a new one? What exactly has happened?

    Welcome to TenForums @Jakoporeeno

    Possibly, yes. This Geoforce thread may be relevant.

    But it could just be a loose connection (see last post here).

    I agree, it definitely seems like a loose connection is the culprit. Double check to make sure your hdmi connections are snug & secure and not loose & hanging off to one side.

    Also double check to make sure that your GPU is properly seated in it's pcie slot or transfer it to a different pcie slot to see if there is a difference.

    Today I tried putting in another GPU and it worked so it's definitely the GPU that is the problem. Hopefully my guarantee will cover this.

    US and British English are different - I recall trying to buy a torch in the US. The guy was confused.
