No pixelation or lines, was absolutely fine, was typing a note to a guildmate, screen froze, then pc crashed. I figured, random crash, turned it back on and got the 8 screens (not tiled) think excel columns, and getting the error.
Temp has been fine, I even let it cool before attempting my novice repair.

OK its not a tile issue...did a full install, got up to the part where my pc "needs drivers and updates...restart...", I did that and I am back to square one; pc is now telling me (again) "you pc was unable to restart...use system restore..."

SO frustrated...
