Hi. My problem is that small dots are appearing all over the screen, their colour seems to mimic the colours on the screen at any given time. On pure text screen they arrange themselves in collumns vertically. More disturbing for me is in Second Life where the screen has so much disturbance all over. It is to the point where it is unplayable. There are flashes and streaks all over the screen, constantly flashing like lightening or electricity arcs, Its difficult to describe they are weird elongated triangles and rods all mimicing the colours in the screenshot, radiating out from some objects inworld but not all. The inworld support suggested I have a corrupt or out of date driver
I have done the following, none of which has worked.
Uninstalled completely CCC and used driver fushion premium to fully remove the left drivers and registry keys, Used CCleaner to scan the registry and fix that, rebooted as directed in the process and then reinstalled CCC and rebooted. Log into Second Life and still the same screen disturbances. I hooked up an old monitor I had to check and the same is showing on the different monitor. I have tinkered with the screen resolution , but two months ago with the same settings it was fine.
All this began around the time of the driver update to catalyst 12.8 and did not improve when 12.10 was released. Some days are far worse than others. The CPU temperature is running at 41C and the graphics card at 39C. My whole system was created 20 months ago so is not really "old"
