Windows 7: Skyrim - Keeps flashing white lines

Skyrim - Keeps flashing white lines


Whilst playing Skyrim "it automatically detected Ultra High Settings on my AMD Radeon HD 7850 graphics card, with updated drivers" white lines began flashing, then odd shapes started appearing on the screen. I tried it in low quality and still the same problem. Surely such a graphics card would be able to handle Skyrim

I have no mods on texture packs and have not touched the files.

Any help much appreciated, will rep if helped.

I don't think it's that your GPU is having trouble handling it, but maybe is glitched for some reason. Does this happen with any other games? If not, I'd recommend reinstalling Skyrim, if so I'd say replace the drivers and if that doesn't work, try reseating your Graphics card. I had this problem back when I had my GT 8800. Reseating it had fixed it for me. Something with the connection was wrong I guess.

White lines in web-pages.
I'm passing this one on from a friend who's having an issue. These white lines appear on his monitor (see pic) but only when he's in a web-page, apparently. At other times it's OK. He seems to have ruled out most of the usual suspects. Any ideas? Wenda.
