Snow on screen, crashing. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey, so I've recently been getting some snow (discolored squares) on my screen every once in a while, causing me to have to restart in order to get it to go away. Then today, when I was running Starcraft 2, my computer crashed to a BSOD. The snow tends to appear when I'm doing very taxing things such as Starcraft 2, but I'm running on a brand new Asus G51J laptop, 6gb of ram, 1 gb of video ram and a quad core i7 processor. Windows created a dump file for the crash but I'm not sure what to do with it. Could anyone suggest what I should do to diagnose this problem?

    Thanks!

Answers

  • Have you tried visiting your GFX card manufacturer website (ATI/NVIDIA) and downloading/installing the latest driver for your chipset?

     

    You can also try right clicking on the desktop, selcect screen resolution, click advanced and select the trouble shooting Tab. the options in the trouble shooting tab tend differ depending on what chipset you are using.
