Q: Random pixels on screen turning red & green, with screen res changing by itself

I'm having a BIG problem with the computer screen. Pixels on my screen keep turning green & pink. It also keeps changing the screen resolution by itself. I tried installing the latest graphics driver from Compaq, unplugging my phone, neither worked. I've provided an image below:

Hi
I have been getting these green pixels appear on my screen, sometimes they are pink depending on the background.

The computer also freezes alot and i cannot do anything not even move the mouse. When the green pixels start coming on i usually turn off the computer. but i decided to leave it on to see what happened and the longer i left the computer on for the worse the pixels got. eventually the bottom half of the screen freezes and i can only use the top half, then the top half will freeze. when this gets to its worst stage i have to leave the computer for 2-3 days before i can use it again or else they are still there? I Think this must have something to do with my graphics card.

Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD4600 Series

Please i really need help on this one.

This is something that's been going on a while at start up,on the home screen there are groups of green pixels popping up here and there on the screen it almost looks like some kind of electrical noise, but if I unplug and go off battery it's still there. Also when scrolling down a web page the sentences run together. Would I be right in saying this is some kind of hardware problem and what could it be?

Is this a laptop? Could be a loose or damaged video cable. If you can, hook up and external monitor and see if the pixels return to normal

hello

I have been having this problem for a while now and i'm wondering if it has anything to do with my graphics card?. In the past it started out as little green pixels showing up on my desktop, then as i used my computer more and more it got worse and worse. The green pixels starting to get bigger and purple pixels started to show up as well...Most of the time now when i play my games, such as (Dota 2, TF2 and gmod) i get weird glitches, flashing, green and purple pixels showing up and some of the time it would be really bad that my computer will bluescreen.

I dont know what the problem is but i really want to get it fixed right away...Is my graphics card dying? do i need to get it replaced?....

i hope someone out there can help me out with this unknown problem of mine. Thank you!

When ever I'm at a dark screen or sometimes just in my desktop (I just notice it more with darker images) I have little green specs flickering on my screen in a pattern. How can I go about fixing this? I doubt that they are dead pixels because they appear in random locations. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

A:How Do I Get Rid Of Random Green Pixels?

No, they aren't dead pixels. They wouldn't show on a screenshot anyway.

Software:

Updated drivers recently?

Hardware:

Tried another cable/input?

Not sure if this is a video card problem...

Here are screenshots of what I'm talking about:


As you can see there are random pixels that flicker on the screen ALL THE TIME. Meaning it doesn't just happen when I'm watching video or something like that. It starts as soon as the computer turns on. And the problem seems to be getting progressively worse.

-- I have a Sony Vaio laptop
-- It is 2 years old
-- OS: Vista Home Premium
-- 3 gig of RAM
-- The problem just started 1 week ago

Thus far I have tried:

-- Doing virus scans (none found)
-- Turning computer on and off

Those things did not work.

1. Can you tell me how to fix this?
2. Can you at least tell me what's wrong with it so I can tell a Tech to fix it?

Thanks.

Yesterday I've gone back to a restore point from 2 days earlier.

The reason for that is that I clean installed the supposedly latest stable driver for my videocard.
I had 344.48 and went to 347.09
It was stable, but not more then what I was on and the FPS were around 15 lower.
I clean installed my old driver again, but for some reason I had the feeling it didn't perform as it did.

That made me restore to the point before updating the driver at all.

Everything ingame works fine again, but since the restore I have this weird problem whenever I open the explorer metro style.
An example is when browsing for an attachment from the Mail app or Internet Explorer (metro).

As following:

I did SFC scannow, scan/check disk, removed and reinstalled the mail app (which doesnt make a difference since its in Explorer).. I even did some fix it and troubleshooters...

Who knows how I can get rid of this?

Hi guys:

My system is a custom build I completed about 3 months ago, initially I had OS reinstall/driver/ & minor stability problems using UEFI which was solved in another board on this forum by changing to MBR config – my system specs are listed.


Also to optimise OS functionality I implemented the following but will roll back if found to be thecause of the error:Turned off the Hibernation File to save disk space [OS mounted on SSD]
Shrunk System Protection to 3.4GB again to save space
Turned off Indexing to SSD only – since it has 4k read capability
Shrunk Page file to 1024MB on SSD
Set Power Option to high performance
Unchecked Defrag for the SSD & its partitions
Disabled GUI at boot
The LCD monitor is connected by the shipped VGA cable with a DVI male connector to the GPU’s DVI out putsocket – I’ve yet to purchase an HDMI cable, hopefully this might be the bottleneck & easily solvable.
btw: I’m not sure if the current problem is related to the previous OS reinstallation issues, anyways I first noticed this problem 3 weeks ago while using a free word processing application “Abiword”, when I was cut n pasting screenshots to a document the screen suddenly went white & having to restart by using the reset PC case button.

A:PC Monitor: Random white & blue green screen displays?

Hi devhead
Welcome to the forums. I think you are running out of memory. Why don't you set Windows to manage the Page / Swapfile on your SSD? I have 16gb of ram and have a 16GB page file on my two main systems. I can run out of memory if I run too many virtual machines and the PC starts writing to hard drives. The fact your machine goes to a white screen and locks up when you are pasting files into documents I think indicates the limited virtual memory is stalling the system. A page file on an SSD would be good use of the drive.

I recently installed Windows Service Pack 2, actually three times after reinstating my computer software to the original state by erasing and reinstalling the full software install CD on my computer's hard drive for Window XP Home. I have no problems playing games with my new FX 5200 Ultra video card by BFG, but I am at random times getting the annoying green screen that blanks out my videos I am streaming or playing(happens when I am streaming more often). Then after that happens usually, the computer reboots or shuts off. I never had this happen before. My computer's memory tests ok so why can I play games with this never happening but when I am streaming or watching video through Windows Media Player, etc do I get the "green screen blankout" and then often the shutdown of my computer? I have 512 MB of system memory and 128 MB of video memory! I use System Mechanic and it shows I have at least half of my memory even during playback so what is the problem here? I can attach my system computer file of my information if you like in an e-mail if it will help. AND YES I HAVE THE DIVX CODECS. I thought about that to and uninstalled and reinstalled them with the same random problems. PLEASE HELP ME. This is really annoying.

This is driving me crazy.

Right after I boot my laptop, the screen flashes randomly.

Also something is stealing focus from what I am working on to something else.

Then it likes to suddenly go to a grey screen. I have to manually reboot.

If that is not enough, it like to just reboot.

Scanned with my AVG and Kaspersky, nothing found. Tried TrendMicro House Call, nothing. Dr. Web, nothing.

All drivers are up to date.

I have run it in the safe mode for about an hour with no problems. No new software installed recently. I went to restore and it was only dated from the previous day, so no help there.

I would prefer not to Nuke and pave, but if that what I need to do, I can.

Any thoughts, theories, explosives you can recommend for this?

I await with enlarging piles of hair as I pull it out.

Try the steps below to resolve.Changing the power management options in the operating systemSometimes just changing the software settings in the operating system power options will fix the issue. Access to the power options in Windows can be done through the Control Panel. Depending on your version and view by settings, you may or may not see a power option link. In that case, look for power options under the hardware category. Once there, create a new plan or modify an existing plan, changing the advanced settings as needed.If changing the operating systems power options does not fix the problem, you can try changing the APCI setting to the computers Basic Input/Output System (BIOS).  Once there, you need to look for Power Management Options. There you will find the different ACPI standby states.

Problem is not related to software, if that was the case flicker should not be at dell logo screen.
But FYI my Graphic Card Drivers are already up to date.
I Guess the problem is at the hinges or with the monitor or maybe related to mother board itself.
when my laptop screen is less than 90 degree i can see few flicker,when it 90 degrees or more than that ,continuous flicker & black screen later as like monitor looses power nothing .

My Lenovo G50-45 Screen as shown in the picture attached, has a band of pink/purple/green that runs across most of the screen. It varies in color and sometimes it is more clouded and sometimes it is clear with just the colored tint. It showed up one day while playing minecraft and came and went a few times and has been there now for a couple of months. Colors are distorted; for example under the band the color red does not show up. At the top of the band it is vibrant and pixelated and I can sometimes see reflections of what Is moving on screen on that tiny band (if that makes any sense). Is it a wiring issue? do i need to replace the screen? or is it a graphics card issue?

Hello, I know this isnt technically a BSOD, but its still a crash, my laptop crashes each time I play games. The crash happens in 3 different forms, sometimes the screen goes weird and then two bands appear, one purple one on top and a whiteish one on bottom, the whiteish band slowly turns green until it completly turns green. The other variants are black screens, but in one form it beeps 3 times after the crash, in the other it doesnt. I tested to see if the laptop would crash with war thunder, I got through the entire menu and to flight test, my plane was in the landing strip, for about 20 seconds, as soon as I pressed the "w" key, the crash happened, it was the purple with green one. I would also like to say that yesterday there were no crashes whatsoever, they just started today. I have a cooler under my laptop at all times. Oh and also, I took the battery out and pressed the power button, then I played an entire match of insurgency without a crash, but then I connected my head set and cooler to the USB ports and it crashed shortly after, dont know if coincidence or something to do with the power. Please help, any help would be appreciated!

Hope im posting this in the right section, i seem to have developed an odd pixel problem, pixels that are the wrong colour (and constantly changing but usually a red like colour) keep appearing on my display.

Will it be my graphics card? Cheers!

Hi everyone,

From last few weeks I'm having this strange and annoying blank screen of death. I could just see a blank screen (not a blue screen) while either waking up computer from sleep or while trying to turn on the display by moving cursor/typing something(waking up from power saver mode of display, I set display to be of after few minutes of inactivity). So essentially screen becomes total blank. Just once or twice I saw this BSOD "DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE" but for all other times my screen is just blank. I could see the Hard Disk activity LED on during this blank screen. And almost after all subsequent boots, I could see "Windows has recovered from unexpected shutdown/serious error - Check for solution" message.

I did not install any nVidia/display drives since then. But just now I got another blank screen after it.

hello,
I have Mozilla firefox 1.5, and windows XP home.
One day I turned on computer and the size of everything had changed - the icons, the start bar, the names of the URL's, the icons on the toolbar, everything was much smaller.
I went to display->settings->advanced and found that DPI is set at 96, which indicates 'normal', so I left that alone.
Screen resolution was 1024x768, which is how it was set when my computer was set up by a friend.

I experimented by changing the resolution to 800x600. This restored everything to the original size, but now the letters are blurry.

Appreciate any ideas as to - what happened to cause this, because I didn't do anything.
And there must be some way to have everything be the usual normal size, and have sharp focus of the type.

thank you,

Hi,

I have something visible on the screen which I can best describe as pixels which brightness is slightly more than the rest of the screen.

I can't say it is dead pixel, because the color changes appropriately to what is viewed making it difficult to spot. So it isn't color stuck, but more like brigtness stuck.

I think the correct term is brightness burnout or something.

Anyway is there a way to fix these? I know there are a couple of pixel testing software ad some say they repair them. Do these software actually repair them or hide them? How could a software fix something like stuck pixels?

Regards

Mike
 

A:How to fix stuck pixels on PC screen?

Theres a few methods i have read about.

Putting a SMALL amount of presure on the offending pixel with your finger.

Using a video like this : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GwrHzjgFtw ( Seizure warning, contains strobing)

Never had a dead pixel so no idea if any of these actually work, but the you tube comments seem hopefull.

I am not quite sure what the issue is, but I really need to find out. I just bought a new monitor and for some reason I am getting flashing blue pixels in random spots on my screen, it seems to be in places where there are grayish colors. I have tried taking a screenshot and they dont show up in the picture so I dont think its my monitor.

This is a custom build pc and its my first so I could have done something wrong. I am not sure if its my graphics card or what the deal is. I have checked my temperatures to make sure it wasnt overheating. and my graphics card is fine but my processor is hitting around 80 C or higher (when Idle). I know that is way too high. I just dont know what to do at this point. could anyone give advice on anything I could do or what my problem could be?

It could be your graphics card, but I would suspect a stuck pixel.

Dear all, Happy new year and all

I wonder if you could help...

My husbands laptop this evening will not turn on AT ALL. It was working perfectly well a few days ago:

When the power button is turned on all that happens is the power light turns green. There is no sound coming from the hard drive (the hard drive light doesn't even show). In addition, there doesn't seem to be a fan working. And finally, there is a light strange noise (not a hard drive noise).

I am wondering whether it is a motherboard issue????
Woud creating a recovery bios boot CD help? Would like wipe the hard drive?

The major problem is that the laptop is used for all our business transactions and GASP.... we haven't backed it up, so we could potentially lose very important data
Many thanks and I do hope somebody is out there to help us.

Much geekness
Lucy

Hello,

I've had my HP Pavilion dm4 laptop for almost two years, and recently I've noticed that at (seemingly) random times, many of the pixels turn bright green. I don't know what's causing it, and it's not incredibly noticeable, but I don't want it to turn into a bigger issue. Does anyone know what may be causing it or has anyone had the same issue?

Please let me know what other information is relevant and I will be happy to provide it!

Thanks!

I have an ASUS M5A78L-M Plus Motherboard with a 6 core AMD processor and windows 7 32 bit operating system. A few seconds after startup the screen gets "weird" and then the BSOD comes up and the system restarts.  I'm assuming my hardware and Power Supply are fine because I left it running for 24 hours in safe mode and it never restarted.  SFC found some corrupt files it couldn't repair, but I don't know if that is causing the actual problem.  I'll post the log below.  This is my first post so I'm not sure if I am giving all needed information, but hopefully I have. Thanks for any help you can provide.

I may have fixed my problem but only time will tell.  I found the upcel.ttf file and it reported the size as 0 kb.  I copied the file from another computer I have running windows 7 and after a huge fight with my pc of getting permission to change the file I was able to delete the 0KB file and replace it with the file that had an actual size.  Now it's been on for about 5 minutes in normal mode and hasn't shut down yet.

Hi there,

I decided to leave my PC in to a repair shop for a BIOS flash, RAM change and re-format of the XP OS - The PC is dual boot - XP and Vista Ultimate. To make a long story short, the engineer re-installed XP and it seemed to be fine.

HOWEVER, when I loaded the latest XP video drivers (181.22), The system went haywire! I tried 181.20, and got this screen.
I did as I always do, removed the previous drivers through add/remove programs > reboot in safe mode > install new version > reboot. I have tried three times to install the drivers now and I'm getting worse results every time!

The SLI cards are working fine in the Ultimate OS - no problems at all - just the XP! (I've updated XP to latest version obviously!)

My Spec:
Intel [email protected]
Tuniq tower cooled
EVGA nForce 680i mobo
Corsair 2 gig DDR2 XMS2 Dominator
2x POV 8800gtx
2x scsi320 147gig 15k rpm hdds raid0 + PCI-E SCSI RAID CARD
320gig sata2
Nec 5170 Dvdrw
XFI Fatality Fps
PC P+C 750 Silencer Quad
24" Dell 2407WFP
Creative 7900 7.1 system

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Just when I powered on my laptop yesterday morning, I say this black patch/horizontal line appearing on the screen.It's not totally black though, there are many red/blue and some green colored dots/pixels around it too.My laptop is under extended lenovo maintenance warranty.So, I emailed the lenovo service (India) and they requested a snapshot of my laptop display in BIOS.I sent a few, and to add to my problems, they replied that as per snapshot, "my display is damaged" which comes under ADP.I am sure it's not damaged unless the laptop has turned into a robot and damaged itself overnight.It is the case of dead pixels which is covered under Lenovo Warranty.I am very unhappy with Lenovo Service and I am unaware of what should I do ?

Ok so here is my problem about an hour ago my pc was working fine and there were no problems. I was googling stuff And I notices that you could disable the gui boot from windows 7. I proceeded to disable this and restart my computer. Upon restart the pc will not boot. Where the logo is meat to come up vertical pixels for at the top of my screen and it just slowly loads more pixels without getting into windows. I figured maybe this has something to do with the no gui boot? I'm not sure my pc will of boot anymore.

Here is what I have tried.
- pressing f8 and attempting to goto safe mode. As all the services load on the screen as soon as it finishes I just get the same pixels at the top of my screen and windows doesn't boot

- I have tried doing a clean install. It lets me select the boot method which I choose CDROM but the windows 7 setup never comes up I just get more pixels

- I have also tried enabling the gui boot through command prompt from the repair your computer option after pressing f8. It comes up as successful but the pixels still occur.

Here are my specs

So what I have done so far, someone told me to install the latest GPU drivers and so I did that, now once it finally installed it looked like my issue was solved the blue blocks went away.

A:Blue Blocky Pixels on my screen please help

I think this is simply a dirty video connector. Since this is a laptop, if you're not technically proficient, I'd suggest you take it to a computer shop that specializes in laptops. Yes, I know it doesn't pop up when you're not on Windows, but the symptoms (and JPG) really remind me of a dirty connector.

But wait awhile for other suggestions.

Hi all, first post on this forum.

I'm currently posting from my other computer, the computer with the problem looks like this:
Right now, even when I try to turn the computer on I have to press F1 to get past the rather annoying Floppy Error, when I don't even have a Floppy Drive. I've heard that you can fix it with BIOS, but I don't know how.

The Graphics Card I'm currently using is a Geforce 8800 GT.

Thanks in advance,

Takara
 

A:Green Pixels and Floppy Disk(s) Errors

Hi mate!

To be honest I can't figure out what is the problem with the screenshot you posted!!! Please explain!

As for the floppy thing:

-Get into your BIOS: Restart your PC and at the first screen that gives you info about RAM, CPU, drives etc you will be able to see a "Press DEL to enter setup" prompt. Do so and you will get into your BIOS screen. There you should locate something like "Standard CMOS features" or "Advanced BIOS settings".

-Search for any entry regarding floppy drives like: "Floppy 1.44" or "Legacy Floppy" or anything similar. Get to it and select "None" or "Disabled".

-Get out of this screen (usually by hitting the Esc key. Select "Save to CMOS and exit" or "Save changes and exit" or something similar. You are done!!!

Be careful before altering your BIOS settings as a mistake can ruin your PC!!! If you are not sure of something just don't do it! Post back with any questions you have! Cheers!

My problem is that some of the black pixels are green and some of the white pixels are pink.
I didnt spill any water on it. I didnt drop it. I even updated drivers. I ran BIOS on it and it was still green.
Also, i dont know if this is related but previously the computer shut down a couple of times by itself (i think cause it was overheating).
Does anyone know what happened and how I can fix this?
Thank you.

Hello everyone! Iv'e been having an issue that's driving me crazy and i'm hoping someone here can help.

The issue i'm having is when my computer goes into sleep/hibernate mode and i wake it up, the screen appears to have a resolution issue ( picture attached ). I figured this wasn't a big deal so i turned sleep/hibernate mode off and just turn my screen off when not in use. I'm getting the exact issue though! When i turn my screen off and back on, the resolution is messed up.
So now i need help resolving this. If it also fixes it for the sleep/hibernate mode, that would be great but not necessary
The ONLY recent change is I upgraded to an Asus GTX560 Ti DirectCU II Top OC graphics card. I installed the card into my computer and windows automatically downloaded the drivers for it.

Things i've tried:
1)Uninstalled and reinstalled graphics drivers using windows update and then again through Nvidia website
2) Currently using HDMI, but get the same issue with DVI-D (single) cord
3) Completely reinstalled Windows 10 Pro from scratch
4) Double checked all connections
5) Look through settings on my TV and settings on the graphics card through Nvidia Experience
6) Googled similar issues, but im not finding many that have the SAME issue as me

You should download and save the appropriate driver from the NVIDIA site, then select the custom install option, then select the clean install option.

Are you having the same issues when using a standard computer monitor instead of using a HD TV?
