hi all! i have a rather amusing issue (to me) but its starting to be persistant and not going away, (and has turnd into a semilong post doing my best to describe it ) i have looked on the web to try and find something similar .. but alas i have found none, with the exception of stuck pixels why am i pretty darn certain its not a stuck pixel? (on my lcd) first time(s) i saw one was while playing Warsow,.. i noticed there was a red pixel prolly a couple inches in from the left, and almost in the center vertically,.. it wasnt *always* there while playing,.. but it was pretty constant,.. it also would sometimes persist afterwards untill i moved another window/app over the top, and then away why is this not a stuck pixel? because i hit printscreen,.. opend ms paint,.. and it was still there,.. (and ms paint was on the other side of the screen,.. with the pixel visible in the same location in the screendump) it also, when i dragged mspaint over the pixel's spot,.. it would add more red dots to the screencap,.. (i could in theory draw with it..) whether or not they physicaly stay with the image file i havent been able to test yet,.. ill try when i get home from work... none the less i could live with a pixel,.. then i noticed on some rare times,.. it would be visible in other games,.. (crysis for example ).. and there were 2 other red pixels on rare occasions in other locations,.. then there comes yesterday,.. while watching the weekly anime in vlc, i noticed when it was dark to near black on the bottom,.. there were 2 white pixels, that would flicker on and off,.. even when paused,.. the fun part with this pixel,.. if i had the size almost fullscreen so i could see one of them (center bout 1inch from the bottom),.. and then moved vlc to the right, the white flashing pixel would follow the window, like as if it was part of the vlc window,.. and when moving back to the left, it moved back,.. but once it hit the original point, it wouldnt move any further to the left,... unfortunately i dont have a differnt monitor at easy hand to test,.. but i have tried to gently rub the screen etc with no avail,.. my thoughts are that a: something is funky with the mobo/cpu b: something is funky with the gfx (more likely) (forgot to put in,.. something is funky with something after the system is warm/hot,... peak recorded gpu temp while playing stalker for a few hours was 70C i think ,.. might have been 75) when i get home from work after midnight ill try see if ican take a screen and see if it sticks to the file... any ideas? 1. Mobo - intel D945GTP 2. Gfx - asus 7900gtx 512mb 3. Mem - (dont know brand) 1gig ddr2 667 4. CPU - intel dual core 3.0 ghz 6. psu - (new) thermaltake toughpower 850W 7. lcd - benq fp93gx age of my system is 16-17months old,.. lcd is 12months ish,.. and the new psu is a month old any hints tips or things to try? (anything at all) thanks!
