Windows 7: Odd pixels showing in 2 different scenarios

Odd pixels showing in 2 different scenarios


Could anyone help as to why I am having these odd pixels show? See picture attached. It either happens after the computer has gone to sleep or a very light version after I turn it on. It often crashes after it happens when it has gone to sleep or I have just closed the lid (which may be the same thing).

I am running Windows 7 on a Macbook Pro

Yes for sure a blue screen!!! The screen has a bunch of text and says it is running a check on the system.

I added my system specs like you asked for. I hope I did it correctly.

Hi Brennen81, as Brink said welcome to SF :) .
Apart from uploading the the files generated by the SFDT, did you consider testing the hardware?
These types of artifacts are more often than not a hardware issue.

BSOD on entirely new custom build in high-usage scenarios
Note that 'high-usage' mostly just means Skyrim right now, because I just got it and haven't done much else with the machine. It doesn't happen every time - it's happened twice. Once, I can ignore, twice not so much. The first time it happened I *did not* have the video card listed, it was on-board...
