In Topic: Scrambled screen/weird screen mean its the card or the monitor?

Oddly enough I fixed it. I moved my video card to another PCI-E slot and now I no longer have the glitch. Can PCI-E slots screw up over time? Only had this motherboard under a year.

I found out this is a issue with certain GeForce GTX 10## cards. They have some sort of VRAM issue where the buffer doesn't empty out like it should and its why it glitches and shows you what it does. They said some companies (like Gigabyte) released fixes for this. But I can't seem to find any. It also mentioned updating your BIOS on the GPU, how do you do that? 

If it helps here are the articles. Anyone know what I should do now then?

Well maybe it didn't work. Now when I am browsing the web at random the screen shows the tabs (and site) I had opened like 14 hours ago. It shows it for about 4 seconds, then it goes back to where I am now. I can't click anything during that period. Weird! Could it be malware? Maybe I should do a scandisk? Reformating is a very much last resort. New hard drive from only a year ago.

Thanks for the replies. I took the monitor back (under a replacement plan). Guy plugged it in and said it worked fine. Argued that they weren't going to replace it because it was a video card issue. I showed him the receipt showing I exchanged the card already. He still didn't believe me but in the end I won and he replaced it. Since getting the new one the issue has stopped for now. Also notice the color and brightness is better on this one. Maybe mine was a lemon from the start. First time I had to ever replace a monitor within a 3 mon th period.

Seemed to have worked. Only issue left is when I have the response time set to fast, I see alot of white ghosting type things when I move in a game. If I set it to normal there is almost no ghosting. Seems like it defeats the point of response time. 

Only real fix is to set the MHZ to 120 and response time to normal. Then there is no ghosting. (sigh)
