    Hey i got my new computer and i seem to get this flashing box every now and then, totally random can be ingame or just on the screen.

    i have all drivers upto date, even tried a rollback onto a previous driver for the gpu.

    here is a screenshot just now as im totally out of ideas.

    Try the monitor on a different PC.
    If it works fine then your GPU probably done goofed.
    Try different cables with the same monitor.
    -also moved to tech support.

    as far as I can think;
    -try different cables
    -try different monitor
    (i dont think these will work but try anyway)
    -update graphics drivers (the one I think will work)

    Hi Venum!

    I cropped the anomaly and did a google image search which directed me to this page:
    http://www.overclock.net/t/1196856/official-amd-radeon-hd-7950-7970-7990-owners-thread/10970

    It seems to be the driver for your GPU is crashing. The guy in the thread ended up sending his GPU to warranty, as he started getting random BSOD's as well with the GPU in question in his configuration.

    You've fiddled with the drivers already and your computer is still extremely fresh. I would take this to warranty or at least open up a support ticket to the manufacturer (or well, depending on how warranty works in the UK).
