I am having problems with my screen fragmentating. when i try and play a game it looks like a lazer light show. when im browsing the internet my screen cuts in half. half of the screen is what i want to see and the other half is mostly my taskbar. my video card is an ati radeon 5700 series HD. my monitor is connected through an HDMI cable. i can still watch videos ive downloaded or stream in HD perfectly fine. i use my monitor for my xbox 360 just fine too. ive dusted my video card and everything. ive tried screen capping it but when i paste it the fragmentation doesnt show up. my roommate knows quite a bit about pcs and he doesnt think its my video card. if anyone can help id greatly appreciate it

Please provide information about your computer, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if branded provide the model name or series number (not serial) the same for the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

Thanks for the additional information but unfortunately it does not tell us two very important details that we need to know which are the brand and model of the PSU and if the computer is a custom build or brand name, the PSU details are important as they will help us determine if a poor quality/under powered PSU could be the cause and the custom build or brand name system details are important as they will help us check if the case cooling fan system is adequate.

If you are able to please provide us with both the PSU and computer case details with your next reply.

One thing that I did notice when researching your MB was that it states for the best performance when only two sticks of Ram are fitted they should be in slots three and four, your Ram is in slots two and three, is there a reason for this, your MB details http://www.ecs.com.t...enuid=1&lanid=0 and below is an attachment detailing the best Ram installation;
