MSI R9 280x causing black squares

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, does anyone have any idea as to what may be causing this with the above card? Seems to happen mostly on facebook with videos embedded on people's feeds. The black squares flicker, andf ar enot always present. No heavy demanding games played. Also just to mention, this is not connected with my laptop listed in signature ;)


Any help very happily received :)

I've had this issue before. Your graphics card is defective and artifacting. You might want to try downloading DDU for a clean uninstall/reinstall on the off chance that your installation has been fucked up. If that doesn't work you have two options: baking the GPU and testing or an RMA.
