I do alot of work in 3ds max and while doing so i believe i had too many polygons on the screen and it froze. Then after a second it gave me the bluescreen and said it was stuck in an infinite loop. So i turned it off and then a little while later turned it back on. I ran malwarebytes just to be safe and it found nothing. Then later on it happened again. But when i turned it back on i noticed some strange pixelations on start up and boot menus. It looked like some pixels were missing out of the texts and when the windows splash screen came up there were some yellow dots here and there. Somewhat noticeable. And then it goes black and then there is a short flash and then the whole screen is dark except for a white square in the middle with some flickering pixelations around it. and just a few up in the corner. When i moved the mouse with the touch pad the square moved around like it was the mouse. I tried plugging in my corded usb mouse but it would not work.
I restarted and ran CHKDSK /R in the windows recovery console but nothing happened. I have an OTLPE disc if that is needed. I do not know what is wrong with it at the moment. I think that it may be hardware related but it has not been getting very hot. And if it is malware related i might know what file it is that is infected.
Please help me. This is a very expensive laptop. Thank you!!!!
My OS is Windows xp pro sp3. It is a gaming laptop from digital storm. 2gigs of ram, quad core processor, 17in. screen. If any other specs might be needed just let me know. Just thought i would include these if it might help with finding out if it might be hardware problems.
Edit: OK now when i turn it on the same thing happens on the boot menu and splash screen, but then the screen just goes black. The screen lights are still on. but the screen is black this time. No white box or pixelations.
