I was watching a film using Windows Media Player on my secondary monitor whilst using Unity 3D on my primary monitor. This is something that I often do, however yesterday the video in Media Player went glittery and then the Unity editor also became corrupt with lines everywhere. After about 2 minutes my computer blue screened.
Here are the steps that I have taken so far:
- Restarted computer, same issue after bootup with just desktop showing
- Cold boot after being off for a while, same issue
- Took computer apart (all hardware) ensured that slots were free of dust and re constructed, same issue
- Ran memory diagnostics which passed
The visual artefacts are moving around my desktop each time a window is redrawn. This browser is flickering like crazy as I type. I have attached a screenshot of the problem. Not all visual artefacts were detected in screenshot, but it looks like some were (hard to tell).
It is weird, as I type squares parts of this window reveal the desktop underneath.
