Hey everyone. A few weeks ago I finally fixed my other problem, but unfortunately I have a new one, and it is a really weird one.
The gist of it is this:
A couple days ago I had a couple power surges, and I have started to have some problems.
A few times when I have booted up, I got artifacts in the form of lines on the loginscreen. If I logged in, it would crash soon after. Strangely, I could fix the lines by unplugging the connector that goes from the monitor to the back of the GPU, and I do not think a crash has resulted after I have done that.
Another one of the issues is that I will be playing a youtube video, I will notice the video has turned green (!), and soon after I will get a atimpag.sys BSOD.
Another issue that occurs (and is occuring right now) is that when I right click an icon, like my CCC or my realtek audio, the pop-up mini-menu items will turn pink when I mouse over them. I don't think a crash results from this, and I can't solve it by unplugging and replugging the connector between the GPU and the monitor.
There is a matter I deem unnecessary in which I messed up a system restore, and had to do a restore from my w7 cd.
I think that the power surge may have messed something up, and I would like some other opinions on how I need to proceed. It really sucks because I just received a new 4870 512 from Visiontek since I (wrongfully) RMA'd it in an attempt to fix my old problem. I also have an new RMA'd gskill RAM stick.
Thanks in advance for any advice that can be given.
Here is a link to a screenshot of the weird *** pink stuff.
