- 1. PC working correctly for a long time, except a display crash caused by videos
2. First heavy crash happened when joining a Team Fortress 2 Game (3D game, antialiasing, Vsync) ; screen went green.
3. I forced a PC shutdown, then booted it, chose normal Windows Startup. There were already green artifacts on the screen (picture, picture).
4. Application without 3D worked (LibreOffice, VLC, MineSweeper, web browsers...), but PC crashed immediatly upon any 3D application (Guild Wars 2, Minecraft, Team Fortress 2...) and Skype voice call.
5. After this crash, when starting Windows normally, PC crash at startup.
6. When launching Windows in safe mode, Windows starts, but green artifacts are visible on display(picture).
7. By uninstalling drivers in safe mode, rebooting PC, and installing drivers back (in normal Windows), we can come back to step 4. after a reboot.
After multiple tries, we once went to a normal Windows without green artifacts (but with some anomalies : strange blue taskbar, strange tilt in menu display in Guild Wars 2 preceding the crash), it then crashed on a 3D application (Guild Wars 2) and went back to step 2
When making a screenshot, there are no visible green artifacts or lines on the image(comparison : picture - screenshot)
