Recently i've been having a lot of power outages and the last one that hit me(there's probably 10000 more to come) did something that i can't i cant figure out. So after the power outage i turned on my pc, everything was fine.. it booted to win fine, then i open after effects and as soon as it popped up i saw this weird glitch, like in the center of the monitor there were 10 RGB colored lines and the rest of the screen was black, first guess was gpu. I saw that glitch for 0.1 sec then the pc instantly shut down. So on the next bootup everything was fine, i repeated what i did and i opened after effects, oddly enough it didn't glitch. So i started benchmarking the pc, 3dmark 11 and aida's cpu benches, then i opened aida's disk bench and the program closed, so i opened the program again and this happened. http://i4.minus.com/innfhpzJzv38e.png when i move my mouse onto a icon, the icon shows and the black disappears but only for the section at which the icon was. like u see in the pic. Anyways does anyone have any idea what is causing this? gpu > artificial glitch after loading afx ram/disk > after closing aida64 out of nothing? gpu > the black screen with icons bug.
