Windows 10: Graphics artifacting on desktop...?

    Graphics artifacting on desktop...?

    Hey all - just installed Win10 on an HP DCS5800 Slim desktop with an Intel Q33 graphics card. Windows 10 seems to run fine, but I am getting graphical artifacting on text and images everywhere. I've tried checking the drivers, but the newest drivers listed on the Intel site are older than the ones that Windows 10 installed during it's upgrade from Win7...

    Example screenshot:

    (Screenshot is a low resolution because I just have an old CRT hooked up to do the upgrade, the owner of the computer has a newer LCD monitor)

    Is there a setting in Windows I can try disabling to get this issue solved? The computer belongs to an elderly lady with poor eyesight, so this just won't do.....any ideas are appreciated!

    Is it a possibility that it's your old CRT that is the source of the problem? If not, maybe she accidentally downloaded MSI Afterburner and overclocked that dog of a PC's graphics card... Try underclocking the graphics and/or check the temperatures of the various components using hardware monitor.

    Not the CRT - it does the same thing on her newer LCD. Not MSI either.

    Maybe it has degraded due to temperature stress, check the temperatures of the components to check if there is anything abnormal. It could have been the stresses of running minesweeper and solitaire at 4K simultaneously on a quad monitor setup, they are pretty graphically intense games! Although you could try downgrading the drivers to older versions and see if the same thing happens you could also try it on the Microsoft Generic drivers that give the most basic display to get the system up and running.

    Hi there

    Try changing Resolution and scan frequency in the advanced display settings. Your LCD monitor might also have some hardware settings in its menu -- try those as well.

    A decent LCD monitor should yield full 1080p at a minimum without artifacting - even on a cheap and nasty onboard graphics system --your graphics should be fine.

    The Monitor hardware settings (on the actual Monitor) would be the first thing to look at. There's all sorts of picture options usually - and you might have got it set for 4:3 by mistake --especially if you used an old CRT monitor initially.

    Also don't Oversharpen the picture or have contrast / brightness set too high. If there's a Gamma control on the monitor use that - it is easier than messing around with Contrast + Brightness combinations.

    You mean this? Intel 82Q33 Graphics and Memory Controller) Specifications
    A search for "Graphics Drivers for Intel® Q33 Express Chipset" in Intel Download Center yields it ....

    Drivers Software

    Also, HP Compaq dc5800 Microtower PC does not contain Windows 10 in its Operating System's dropdown list.

    No graphics driver for windows 10. Probably that is the reason behind the screen artifacts.

    Somewhere suggested I install DirectX and that seems to have solved the problem so far, will report back in a few days and I'll let you know!
