Hi guys. I have a Lenovo Legion Y530 laptop with gtx1050ti. I bought it last April, so not a full year till now, but it already shows problem.
On a random afternoon, I wasn't even play games or anything, I notice this on my steam. So I check with games, it turn out they all showed this.
I have already tried my luck with the service center but they don't know what it is, so they do a factory recovery instead, which resulted in losing all my games, so I couldn't test it.
It really got normal when I played for the first few hours, then get back at it again. These patterns are not static, they also flicker.
My other apps like chrome, or my desktop background are all fine, only the VGA-related apps got problem.
Please help. Thanks for reading.

Dota




Steam


Its worst


Edit: One more thing: It get like, 20% better, which is still very bad, when I unplug the power cord.

check for overheating?
Yes I have, before it happened the first time I was playing dota 2, which is more than doable for a 1050ti, not to mention it was a cold day. After the occurrence I used msi afterburner to monitor the temperature couple of times, all seems normal, 90 degrees max.

Ok, that confirmed my suspicion. I will stop messing around and send it to the warranty center again. Since it wasn't that convenient to do so, I needed you guys to make sure of it.
Thanks a lot guys.

Looks like an overheating or failing video card, you will probably need to send this to their warranty center for support.
