Weird colors + computer freez picture included
Hi this past week or so my computer displays a weird pattern of colors on my screen and locks up when watching website videos. I can play games for hours on end with no issues but as soon as i start watching videos on a website my computer locks up and weird color pasterns appear. I took a picture of what it looks like with my cell phone since print screen obviously wont work. I have done a fresh reinstall of the latest video card drivers with no success. My windows is all up to date and my Norton and malware-bytes is coming up clean. I have a 750w corsair PSU that's connected to a cyberpower UPS. Any idea on whats causing this? Oh and im using firefox 11.0 as a browser.

I have been having a similar problem. While watching a Youtube video or other flash video the screen will freeze and everything goes pink/purple. Sometimes it will recover. If I select 480, no other resolution, sometimes the screen will freeze and the sound goes crazy. If I'm playing some games, the computer will completely shutdown with no warning or errors in EventViewer. This has been happening for around a month or two for me.

I'm having the exact same problem, with the exact same graphical glitch and system lock up with sound. It first happened while watching flash based videos on youtube (disabling the gpu acceleration has so far stopped the problem). It should be noted that I was using my sister's 560TI when it happened. I decided to go back to my old 460GTX, the same problem happened again. So far I did not have a single lock up inside games except once in everquest 2 but it was during the small intro with the credits, basically once 3d is used I've had 0 problem. Was thinking I had a problem with my ram or mb but it seems I'm not the only one with this problem. I've had this problem with both 296 and 295 drivers, but I think it has more to do with a defect in one of the flash updates (since I use chrome it updates flash automatically so I can't be certain if it started happening after a certain update).

[i]Those colored artifacts are normally associated with the memory of the graphics processing unit. It could be that it has become damaged due to overheating, or has reached a faulty point during its lifespan. In most cases, driver alteration will not rectify the problem. You can attempt to downclock the memory frequency to see if any change takes place, however it is not guaranteed to have a positive impact in fixing the problem. From my experience, once these appear...they tend to become permanent and more frequent. You may want to look into your RMA/Replacement options for a new unit. [/i]

So we must hand it over to our tame PC tweaker. Some say he sticky tapes a block of uranium to his dinner before eating it and that he sucks moisture out of ducks. All we know is, he's called Hooks.

But then how would you explain that I had this problem with TWO different cards, and that the 560ti that had this problem on my computer has no problem on my sister's computer ? And the 460 I gave to my sister had no such problem until I took it back?

I just started getting this last night. Tried rolling back the drivers to 295.73, no luck. I have a 460 GTX.

Update:
I did a windows rollback to one I had from 3 days ago and that seems to have work. I am avoiding the flash update that I did a 2 days ago.

and @ thread starter

Use older driver (295.73) and or update Flash player to beta or newest possible.. btw, 296.10 are famous to cause that on cheaper Fermi GF104/114 gpus aka 460/560gtx..
