Hiya guys long time no speak.
PC has been running great for near on 2 years now, it's been excellent on the whole, however as of late I've started to get random pixel breakup on my screen shortly after it boots into Windows, other times completely randomly. I will attach a picture. It usually happends shortly after I've booted into the system and the startup items have loaded. it's more likely to happen on a cold boot, the problem usually goes away for hours after a couple of reboots and repeats of the problem. The complete screen automatically breaks up to an unrecognizable mess, and I no longer have control over the mouse either, it's a clean lock up.
I've already reinstalled Windows hoping it was driver related but the problem still persists. I'm wondering if it's either the graphics card, PSU or RAM?
Looking in event viewer I'm getting Event 41, Kernal-power errors, I also have problems with the AMD fuel service which I've disabled.
System is clean, run all virus and malware scans. Should I run onboard from bootup to see if the problem still persists?
