    Default Is this a monitor or GPU fault?

    Hi guys,

    I've posted on here as my monitor, an Acer X34 was bought from Aria and I have a fault but I'm unsure if it is due to the monitor (by Acer, that wouldn't be a surprise) or if its my GPU, a 1080TI bought direct from Nvidia.

    Here is a video of what happens.

    Its a consistant fault that happens nearly every time you power up after a 30 min+ break.

    I've reloaded my gpu drivers and tried a different cable and different display port socket on the gpu but these made no difference.

    Any ideas?

    Looks like a GPU/GPU memory fault to me.

    Usually artifacts like that come up when the memory is overclocked too far or on its way out. If you have MSI afterburner (or something similar) installed, try down clocking the memory 100mhz and see if it still does it. If it does, run a HDMI cable to your TV and see if it still happens on your TV, if it does - its RMA time for your GPU buddy.

    i would guess vram, try down clocking (like ian said) them both tbh to see if you can trigger it.

    It's the newest drivers.

    Mine did the same.

    Download the beta drivers and it will fix the issue

    I know it says booting to black screen on notebooks, but it cured the same issue you are having for me.
