Hello,

I am pretty inexperienced with computer hardware, so I apologize if this is not a GFX card issue, but I am seeing lines flash in the middle of my screen on occasion.

Games do not seem to experience the issue, and I don't believe it happens with all applications minimized and only the desktop showing. It seems to happen mostly (that I've happen to notice) when I'm running unity or visual studio code.

I have tried updating/reinstalling drivers and checked to see if any wires are linked with no change in results.

Again, the only somewhat reliable way for me to reproduce the issue is loading and working in unity and visual studio code.

Thank you for any suggestions!

Does it happen while connected to another screen?

Is this a laptop or a desktop? What model?

Make sure the video ribbon is plugged in securely to the motherboard (Or on a desktop, try switching the HDMI/DVI/VGA cable).

It is on an ASUS TUF A15 laptop. I do not have another screen to try at the moment but I will find one and see if that changes anything.

Thank you for your suggestion! I will check if the connection is secure to the motherboard.
