Hey guys, I have a Gateway FX Desktop Replacement and I bought it refurbished, as suggested by another techie.. (For the price)

As soon as I bought it, it would artifact on black background. I sent it in with its 90 day refurbished warranty, and they replaced the motherboard, cpu, and integrated 9800GTS

Since then, it has operated smoothly until today. I turned her on and I noticed the same distortion on black and similar colors. I got so frustrated I shut her off immediately hoping my eyes were playing tricks. I have a third party warranty with her, but I don't know if they will be able to replace it.. ;_;

Can someone help me out? =((

Eh. Model #P7811FX

I found out what it was doing. It has a bad screen. If I turn the gamma up, the artification disappears. But if I turn it down, it gets worse. The lower the gamma the worse the artification.

Looks like I'll be shipping it off...

I don't know actually. Whatever comes with that laptop. I just know it's a Gateway 17" 1920x1280 LCD Laptop screen. =D
