Windows 7: Weird display on my screen, kind of striped view

02 Nov 2013   #1

Windows Home Premium 64bit.
Weird display on my screen, kind of striped view

So when my sister was using the computer all of the sudden the screen display changed. The program icons seem to be stripy, the screen is darker and somehow green-like on the white parts. To me it kind of reminds of comic book drawings , those spotty/stripy backgrounds. My graphics card is nvidia geforce gt 430
thanks for your attention

It sounds like the monitor is on its last legs. Have you checked the graphics card? Is it clean and free of dust?

This can be caused by several things.
Bad driver
Unknown resource using all gpu time.
Faulty GPU
Faulty monitor

Reinstall the GPU driver and see what you get.
