Windows 7: Screen Pixelated after minutes of usage

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit 7600 Multiprocessor Free
Screen Pixelated after minutes of usage

I need help with this problem. It really delays my progress every time the pixelation happens. I'm not sure if this thread goes to the software section or to the graphics section. Does anyone knows how to fix this problem? Thanks.

Hello and welcome:

I'm not sure, but I suspect this is hardware/drivers, rather than "software" per se.

First, obvious thing to check (since I think this is a desktop): the cable connecting the PC tower to the monitor. Is it tightly attached (plugged in) at both ends?

Next, we could better assist you if we knew a bit more about the system. I suggest that you please follow this tutorial to fill in your system specs:

Thanks for the reply and the cable connecting to the PC and the monitor is tightly intact.

I'll be filling up the system specs. By the way this is an old PC. I guess.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the info.

Do you have the latest drivers for your GPU?

Other than that, I have no idea. Sorry.
Perhaps one of the smarter folks will have some suggestions.

Have you checked your NVIDIA Control Panel to see if changing the Refresh Rate or the Resolution might help. To open the NVIDIA Control Panel, right click on the Desktop & select NVIDIA Control Panel.

You could also reset NVIDIA to the Default setting, which is up on the top RH edge of the screen.

Before you make any changes just note down the existing ones in case you need those again.
